The dukkah is a brilliant Middle Eastern ground spiced nut mix often used in conjunction with good olive oil as a dipping condiment for bread. It will keep perfectly well for up to a month in a sealed jar to be used as and when.

Preheat oven to 160°. Evenly spread the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast until nicely toasted – 10 to 15 minutes. 


If your hazelnuts have a skin, whilst still hot, over a dustbin tip the nuts into a deep-sided colander and coarsely stir with a wooden spoon. You will find that the rough skin easily flakes and falls off through the holes of the colander. Though I am minded to think a bit of hazelnut skin never hurt anyone. If skinless, toast, until nicely golden brown.


Use a food processor, pestle and mortar, or have the nuts wrapped in a towel and bash them with a rolling pin – crush the nuts to a coarse consistency. As you like.


Meanwhile, toast the whole cumin and coriander in a dry pan in the oven at the same time as your nuts. 5 or so minutes - until they begin to smell and crackle. Grind.
