Dukkah @ Duqqa Bread

Dukkah is actually the name for an Egyptian spice mix. It contains of any kind of nuts, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, black peppercorn and sesame seeds. Normally, Dukkah is served as a dipping for middle east flat breads together with olive oil. Dukkah is such terrific mixed spice and it's perfect for anything...especially in bread. Even my dog can't resist the taste & smell of it.

1-1/2 tbsp  black sesame
1 tbsp  black peppercorn, crushed
1 tbsp   cumin seeds

(4) then place dough to a slightly floured working table, knead dough till smooth.
(5) divide into 2 portions.
(6) flatten each dough then roll them up like a swiss roll.

(8) finally, baked at preheated oven 180-185'C for 30 mins.
(9) leave the bread cool for 20 mins before removing them from the cans..

Recently, I started collecting these canned food cans in various of sizes. But have to make sure they're not rusty. It's best to rub the inner can with a bit of cooking oil for better protection. You've no idea how useful they are ! Besides, saving you quite a bit. :o)

I'll have to say this bread is excellence with such flavourful spices. My whole family is loving it. Oh yeah, included my dog. haha..... Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy.
