Dukkah is an ancient Egyptian nut/spice mix. It works great, instead of breadcrumbs on rissoles.
- 25g hazelnuts
- 25g almonds
- 25g sesame seeds
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- Salt & pepper (to taste)
- 400g Beef mince
- 1 onion (finely chopped)
- 2 cloves of garlic (grated)
- small bunch of parsley
In a frying pan, toast the hazelnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, cumin, coriander and fennel seeds, for several minutes.
Put all the nuts and spices into a food processor and blitz to a breadcrumb type consistency. Season well.
Put the mix onto a plate.
In a bowl, mix together the mince, onion, garlic and parsley.
Divide into 4 equal pieces, roll each into a firm ball and slightly flatten into a burger shape.
Push each rissole into the nut mix, coating all sides.
Heat a little groundnut oil in a frying pan, and fry the rissoles, on a low heat for 5 minutes on each side.
Ensure the rissoles are cooked right through, before serving with salad
