Sesame seed

Sesame seeds are used in both sweet and savoury dishes. These seeds are ivory in colour and have a strong nutty flavour. They’re commonly seen on the streets of India as a snack rolled in palm sugar, similar to sesame snaps or peanut brittle. Seeds can be used whole as a garnish or ground to a paste to add in to the dish.
