Dukkah Spice

Guests of ours recently spoilt us, with making this most wonderful spice.  They very kindly shared the recipe, which is based on the traditional Egyptian Dukkah Recipe (but better!).  This is the most Fabulous spice is so deliciously yummy, I found myself sprinkling it in on almost everything, even just gobbling straight off my hand.
Dukkah spice

100g  (about 2/3 Cup) Hazelnuts
100g  Sesame Seeds
2 Tbls (30ml) Cumin Seeds
2 Tbls (30ml) Coriander Seeds
1 tsp (5ml) Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp (5ml) Flaky Sea Salt (I used Maldon)
1 Tbls (15ml) Paprika
1/2 tsp (2,5ml) Turmeric
Large pinch of dried ground ginger
Some of the ingredients for the dukkah
*  Heat a medium sized frying pan over medium heat.  Dry roast the nuts, and seeds in the pan, stirring until a lovely golden colour  (about 2 minutes or so)
* Place the nuts and seeds in a food processor and whizz until coarsely chopped.
* Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
* Adjust salt to taste
* Store in an air tight container.
* And voila - that is it.  So easy and so delicious!
Food processing the spice
Tips and Suggestions:
*  You can substitute the Hazelnuts for Pistachio nuts, or almonds
*  Add as a spice to curries, stews over meat for a braai (bbq).
* Lovely sprinkled over a fresh salad
* Add a pinch a chilli powder or cayenne pepper, for a bit of a bite.
* Traditional served with crusty home bread and olive oil.
