Cooking with Whole Foods [CWF] : Sesame seeds

Yes "CWF - Cooking with Whole Foods" which is the brain child of Kiran of Sumadhura is here in my blog for the next two months. By the name you can understand the purpose and essence of the event.

Coming to think of it, not a day goes by without any of the whole foods being used in our cooking. The theme for the next two months is "Sesame Seeds". There is no need to introduce these lovely seeds to anyone who does any sort of cooking... be it pure Indian, Middle Eastern Cuisine, Savoury cookies, breads, rolls and bakes etc.

Some information about the origins of this seed: The word sesame means "plant oil"... it is evident when from the oily nature of the seed. From this oil "Gingelly  oil / Nallennai " is extracted. In hindu religion, sesame seeds represents immortality. That is the reason why sweets made out of sesame seeds is used as offerings to God and the oil is used to light divas next to ghee.

It is one of the oldest condiment known to man and is abundant is good oils, vitamins and minerals. For more info about this seeds , please visit the following link - Health Benefits of Sesame Seeds .
