Delicious pistachio dukka

Have you tried dukka? It’s a nutty, crunchy, spicy Middle Eastern dip that you sprinkle on your food or dip your bread into. It’s delicious & totally addictive!

My friend introduced me to dukka a few years ago and now I make it all the time, although it only lasts about 5 minutes because my husband and I can’t stop eating it once we’ve started (note to self: make more dukka).
Its traditionally eaten with bread & olive oil. First the bread is dipped into the olive oil then the dukka. The dukka sticks on the oily bread and you get a super scrummy oily, crunchy, spicy mouthful.
However dukka is really versatile and can be sprinkled on salads, soups & curries.
The recipe can also be adapted and tweaked to taste, for example you can use different nuts but I think pistachio and hazelnuts work the best.
