We are a small business producing traditional Egyptian dukkah. All our dukkah's are blended by hand in our own kitchen using high quality ingredients. We only produce in small batches, roasting every ingredient individually, so we can ensure when you buy our dukkah it is of the best quality for you to enjoy.
So what is dukkah?
Dukkah (pronounced doo-kah) originates from the streets of Egypt. It is a condiment consisting of delicious nuts, seeds and spices. The word dukkah comes from the Arabic for "to pound" because the ingredients are pounded to the perfect texture that is neither a paste or a powder. Traditionally this condiment is served with bread and oil, dip the bread in the oil and then the dukkah and devour! But it is so versatile, as well as a dip you can also use it as a marinade simply by adding oil or yoghurt, a dry rub for any meat or fish or simply as a sprinkle on top of any of your favourite dishes to give it a crunchy dukkah kick.
An Idea is Born
I was given a recipe for traditional dukkah that had been handed down generations of an Egyptian family and I have been making it ever since. Dukkah is fairly unknown in the UK and what I have found so far tasted nothing like this traditional recipe.
That is why I decided to start up Dukkah Delights. I want to spread the word about dukkah and hopefully it will become as popular as it is in Australia where you can find it in every superstore.
