Servings 1 jar


  • 40 g pine nuts *
  • 40 g shelled pistachios *
  • 40 g sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme *
  • a healthy pinch of pepper


  • Weigh the ingredients separately and let them toast in a pan on medium/high flame; given that the times to toast each ingredient are different, but we certainly also do not want to dirty a lot of pans, first toast the pine nuts and pistachios, then combine the sesame seeds, then the coriander and cumin, and finally, the thyme.
  • Allow the contents of the frying pan to return to room temperature then crush it with a mortar and pestle or chop it in mixer. You can decide if you prefer a fine powder or fine grainy mix. In my opinion, a grainy mix works best for the avocado recipe.
  • Transfer the chopped grainy mix into a small glass jar, then add salt and pepper and shake the mix.
  • Keep your dukkah jar with all your other spices in a dry, cool place away from sunlight.
