This week we've got a brand new ingredient on our menu - dukkah. And we've combined it with your favourite fish - salmon. More on this later but first, what's Dukkah?
Dukkah is an Egyptian condiment made from a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices. It is typically used as a dip with bread or fresh vegetables for an appetiser.
The word dukkah is derived from Arabic for "to pound" because, after being dry roasted, the mixture of spices and nuts is pounded together to a texture that is neither powdered nor paste-like. The actual composition of the spice mix can vary from family to family, vendor to vendor. There are, however, some common ingredients, such as sesame, coriander, cumin, salt and black pepper.
Coming at you with an idea for tonight’s dinner... a little bowl of warming kidney beans curry for this cloudy Tuesday. Recipe below ✌🏽 Ingredients:
- 1tsp of oil - sunflower, coconut, any suitable cooking oil
- Half an onion, sliced
- 1 tsp of crushed ginger and garlic
- A tablespoon of whole spices (Breyani mix), this is a mixture of whole fennel seeds, coriander seeds, cloves, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, peppercorns and black and green cardamom. Find this at a spice shop, already mixed up in a packet. Alternative: 1tsp of garam masala - 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 can of kidney beans
- 1/2 a tomato, chopped
- 1 stalk of curry leaves
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp curry powder
- Salt to taste
1. Heat the oil, add your onions and fry till brown
2. Add the whole spices if using (if you only have garam masala don’t add this yet)
3. Add the ginger and garlic and fry for a few seconds
4. Add the cubed potatoes, beans, tomatoes, curry leaves and all your spices and add enough water to the pot to cover the ingredients
5. Turn the stove down to a medium heat and simmer for between 20 minutes and half and hour till your gravy thickens and your potatoes are cooked through.
Garnish with some coriander and serve with rice or roti.

We’re still in White Truffle season so let’s drizzle that sh*** literally on top of eeeeverything!! Baked Camembert topped with rosemary and honey in rhye bread sounds like the perfect match don’t you think?
So I’m gonna take some local cooking classes when in 🇱🇰Sri Lanka🇱🇰 in a few weeks but I kinda wana be like “Ya I know how too cook Sri Lankan food, Thank U, Next” (kiddiiiiing, I know pretty much next to nothing haha but I nailed my Chapatis and like everything else you see in this pic 💁🏾♀️)
Came up with this BOMB sweet potato recipe inspired by the popular Lebanese dish “Bata Harra”. I don’t really like to peel any of my potatoes so I just washed them really well, cut into cubes and fry them in extra virgin olive oil before I toss them in a pan together with some roasted garlic, fresh cilantro wand half squeezed fresh lemon juice. Let’s not forget to give it the right kick by seasoning it with crushed chili, fresh chopped chilies and paprika 🌶🍠 🔥
Pasta gets me!! All shapes, forms and colors! This one in particular is a Lebanese version that we like to call “Maacarona Bi Laban” which simply translates to Macaroni in Yogurt 🤷🏾♀️ It also includes crushed garlic and is topped with a generous amount of pine nuts and slivered almonds roasted with some butter and all spice.
Get your farmhouse bread, get your avo, smoked salmon, cream cheese, EGGS (always eggs), capers and some more dope stuff and make yourself some breakfast Bruschetta’s cause no one wants to have just cornflakes!!
