Try it

Thanks for the explanation about Dukka- had never heard of it before. But it sounds scrumptious on these potatoes. Will definitely try it, and add it to my online recipe collection. SO worthwhile learning about the ingredients and recipes from other cultures. Thanks Vegetarian Times.

Interesting dish. I cannot tell from photo what this mixture is served in ... is it sweet potato? Please advise, thank you!
