Tear & Share Bread with Dukkha

Dukkah is a coarse, aromatic mix of nuts and spices that is delicious with home baked bread. Simply dunk the bread in some olive oil, then generously roll in the Dukkah. It’s truly delicious!


For the Dukkah

  • 2tbsp Flaked Almonds
  • 2tbsp Pistachio’s
  • 1tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 2tsp Coriander Seeds
  • 1 ½tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1tsp Coarse Sea Salt

For the white bread dough

  • 300g Strong White Bread Four
  • 175ml Warm Water
  • 12g Fresh Yeast
  • 8g Salt
  • 1 Tsp Soft Unsalted Butter

For the brown bread dough

  • 150g Wholemeal Flour
  • 150g Strong White Bread Flour
  • 180ml Warm Water
  • 12g Fresh Yeast
  • 8g Salt
  • 1tsp Soft Unsalted Butter


For the bread you will need to maintain the temperature in your wood fired oven at around 240°c.

The technique for making the doughs are the same for both, but usually best to do the brown first as it can take a little longer to proof.

Start by putting the flours and salt in a mixer. Whisk together the water, yeast and butter and gradually add to the dry ingredients. Mix for around 10 minutes until a smooth dough is formed. Repeat these steps for the white dough.

Put both doughs in separate bowls; loosely cover with tea towels and leave to proof for an hour or so.

Next, knock back the dough and divide into 12. Shape each into a ball and place 2 white balls, and 2 brown balls very close too each other on a lined baking tray. Repeat the process with the remaining balls.

Lightly cover the trays of bread with clingfilm and leave to proof again for 1 hour. Finally, bake in the oven for 16 minutes.

Moving onto your Dukkah, your oven will need to be at around 200°c. The key with Dukkah is to toast each ingredient individually, giving the tray or pan a quick wipe out each time!

Start by toasting the nuts, then the spices, ensuring they don’t brown too much!

Transfer all ingredients to a pestle and mortar and roughly pound- Dukkah should have quite a coarse texture so don’t go too mad making a powder!

There you have it! Grab some olive oil and get dunking!
