10 MIN



  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) whole, blanched almonds
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) sesame seeds
  • 4 teaspoons (20 ml) chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoon (10 ml) turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground coriander
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Cubed bread, for dipping


  1. Using a mortar and pestle or a small food processor, crush the almonds into small pieces. Add the remaining ingredients except the olive oil and bread, and mix well. Transfer to a small bowl. Pour the olive oil into another bowl. Serve with bread cubes that diners dip first in the oil and then in the dukka.
