  • Gently roast the hazelnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds in a pan. About three minutes will do it. Take them out and pop them into a blender.
  • Next, slowly roast the fennel seeds, normal cumin, coriander, and white sesame seeds. These won’t take as long - about two minutes should do it.
  • Put the second batch into the blender as well and just press the pulse button a couple of times. We’re looking for a nice crunchy mix here, not a powder. Finally add the green pepper, sea salt, black sesame seeds, black cumin and paprika powder and give it a last quick blend.
  • Put it all in an airtight glass. Done! Use it to intensify soups, dips and salads or treat yourself to an oily bread and dukkah. You won’t look back.


IF YOU LIKED THIS RECIPE: find something awesome to sprinkle it on! Anything goes - whether it’s this Creamy Broccoli Pasta, this Vegan Potato Soup or even this High Protein White Bean Dip. Have fun!
Please note that the nutritional chart included is for the entire jar, and would be roughly 32 tbsp.
Jansen - thanks a lot for bringing some Egyptian flavours into our kitchen. What a cool recipe!
