But First, What’s Dukkah?

Before we talk about the seven ways to eat dukkah (pronounced “doo-kah”), we need to define it. Dukkah, also spelled dukah, dukkah, or duqqa, is a Middle Eastern nut spice condiment derived from Egypt. The Arabic name means “to pound.” It’s a very simple and quick condiment to make. Furthermore, it’s very versatile. Dukkah can be sprinkled on any meal. This is healthful; nuts are healthy, as are the spices used to make this garnish.
