This is an Egyptian blend of nuts, seeds and spices, traditionally eaten with pita bread dipped first in good fruity olive oil. Pepper adds its fragrant pungency and also rounds out the other flavours. The mixture should be loose and dry rather than a paste, so be careful not to over-process the nuts. They can become oily if ground too finely.
