The below is tahini sauce with black sesame seeds. It is usually made with white sesame seeds, but unfortunately I ran out of white sesame seeds and the main problem with me is that if I see or come to know about any recipe I have to try it soon. So I tried with black sesame, I didn’t find any difference in the taste. The main reason that I am posting this if any one like me who doesn’t have the white sesame and not trying this, it will help them too. The actual motivation to make the tahini sauce was for making shawarma. When one of my friends called and gave me the recipe for shawarma, which she saw from one of the TV Channel, all the ingredients were there with me and only the white sesame was out of stock, I didn’t give up and I made it the day after itself. So here goes the recipe for tahini sauce and shawarma recipe is on the way.
Black Sesame Seeds: ¼ cup
Olive oil: 4tbsp
Lemon Juice: 1 tbsp
Curd/Yogurt: ¼ cup
Method of Preparation
Heat a pan and dry roast the sesame seeds. Switch off the flame when it starts spluttering.
Add this into the blender when slightly cooled.
Blend it for some time and then add the olive oil and blend again.
Then add the garlic, lemon juice and salt and blend again.
Take out from the blender into a bowl and add curd to it and mix well.
(Can add more olive oil and curd if you need it thinner than this)
Tahini Sauce is ready.
