Have you ever heard about Dukkah?
Dukkah might be sound a little bit unfamiliar to the Indonesian market. Dukkah is a Middle Eastern blend of spice, which some people believe it’s originated from Egypt. It’s made of nuts, sesame seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds. The texture is crunchy with a bold nutty taste. Egyptians usually enjoy dukkah by dipping a slice of bread into olive oil and then dipping the bread into the dukkah mix. But some people also use it for seasoning purposes, like meats or lambs, to get a rich flavor.
This spice is also rich in nutrients and has many benefits for our health, thanks to the multiple ingredients contained in the blend of dukkah. Consuming this blended spice could help lower any cardiovascular diseases. It can also strengthen the immune system, eliminate free radicals, press down cholesterol levels, and also prevent high blood pressure.
Some blended dukkah contains almonds as the main ingredients. As we know almond is the star among the nuts family. It’s rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, folate, and niacin. It means your body can also absorb those healthy benefits by consuming a moderate amount of dukkah.
But how do you consume dukkah?
People usually consume dukkah as a topping. You can add it to your salad, guacamole, or sprinkled over your avocado toast, or even combine it with your favorite yogurt. The sweet and salty taste of dukkah amazingly matches various meals.
