    I love your siggie and the information on sesame. Thankyou for sharing it here.
    I use Sesame in ways I know of - in baking, in making tahini, and sometimes as a tadka. Would appreciate it if you let me know how I can cook it without it getting bitter. I use this mainly for my son who had milk allergies. TIA.

    dear tikka

    select good quality black or white sesame.. the black variety is the best as far as nutrients are concerned.
    soak for a few minutes say about five minutes will do...drain water and let it dry ....roast till it splutters...it will turn bitter if you roast it further. add to whatever dish you are making...also it can turn bitter if you grind very fine...if you coarse grind it ....it tastes wonderful..


    quite a long time back we had a patient's son who had milk allergies too...they soaked sesame in water overnight...washed and ground in mixie strained to take the sesame milk dilute it two times depending upon how old the baby is....cook on low fire or in a pan kept inside a pan of boiling water...no sugar added...

    other dishes are
    til milagai podi that goes with dosa and idli
    til laddu's made with jaggery
    it can be used in sabji's both the north indian and southindian varieties
    in curries esp carrot ...it is usually added at the end...this one is dry roasted as before and added.

    sathya

    Hi,

    Thanks for the information..
    Let me add one more point...
    Use sesame seeds with the skin... If skin is removed, we cannot get the benefits...
