If you're after a seasoning that uses toasted hazelnuts and sesame seeds then duqqa (dukka) is the one for you! Travel to Egypt in particular, though you'll often find it in Australia too, and you'll get to enjoy this traditional mix everywhere. It's often blended with olive oil and used as a bread and vegetable dip. It can also be added to many other dishes as a general seasoning. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)
What You'll Need: (makes about 9-10 tablespoons)
10 tbsp shelled hazelnuts
6 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dill seeds
1-2 tsp salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight and in a cool place. Use within 2-3 months.

Ingredient Note: If you don't have the whole spices, just use pre-ground powders and reduce the amounts the recipe requires by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of whole coriander you use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
Ingredient Note 2: Whole hazelnuts and sesame seeds are also best. But if you can only get pre-ground use these and stir in with any other powders.
