Watermelon with pistachio dukkah

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 10 mins


  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sesame seeds
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) coriander seeds
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) cumin seeds
  • 60g (½ cup) pistachios, dry-roasted
  • 10ml (2 tsp) salt flakes
  • 1kg watermelon, peeled and cut into large cubes or batons



Combine the sesame, coriander and cumin seeds in a small frying pan over low heat until lightly toasted.


Place the spices in a small food processor bowl, add the pistachios and salt. Blend until nearly ground, keeping a bit of texture to the dukkah – it looks beautiful too.


Sprinkle over the watermelon cubes and serve.
