Tracing the origins of Dukkah

The Dukkah spice blend originates from Egypt, but its exact date of appearance is not determined. It has been consumed primarily in the Middle East for several centuries. Additionally, the Dukkah blend is also very popular in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The term Dukkah comes from an Egyptian Arabic word that literally means "to crush," referring to its production process. Indeed, the ingredients composing the blend are coarsely crushed.

The research of Edward William Lane, known for his research work on Egypt and its culture, has allowed the Western public to learn more about Egyptian society and culture. In one of his works, published in 1836, Edward William Lane explains that Dukkah was mainly used by the common people to season their bread and dishes. This spice blend is rich in nutrients, providing the necessary nutrients to meet the physical needs of the less fortunate.
