Tahini Sauce

I have lived in the Middle East for 5 years and fell in love with the food there, though a little bland for our Indian taste buds......something worth giving a it Baba ganoush, hummus, sheesh tawook, falafel, kuboos,pita bread, baklava, umm ali and my all time favorite shawarma.

This is just a small attempt to try to relive the memories I have had when I was in Bahrain.

  • 2 cups Sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup or little more Vegetable oil
  1. Spread sesame seeds on a flat baking sheet.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degree C and pop into the oven and bake for about five minutes, do not let the sesame seeds brown.Remove and let it cool.
  3. Transfer the seeds into a blender or food processor, add oil and blend to a smooth paste, add more oil if required.
  4. Transfer the tahini into an air tight container and store in refrigerator.
  5. Use tahini to make hummus and baba ganoush.
