Originally from Egypt, Duqqa is a food consisting of a mixture of nuts, probably hazelnut, and spices. It is typically used as a dip with bread or fresh vegetables, and eaten as an Hors d’œuvre. It can also be used as a side dish to the main course of a meal. Pre-made versions of duqqa can be bought in the spice markets of Cairo, with the simplest version being crushed mint, salt and pepper which are sold in paper cones. The packaged variety is found in markets that is composed of parched wheat flour mixed with cumin and caraway.
