Sesame seeds do come under the healthiest seeds on planet nd have tons of health benefits too.These seeds are tiny yet nutty in taste and known to human beings from ancient time. Sesame seed is rich in copper, manganese, calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, nd selenium and also helps in lowering cholesterol levels in the body.Read some more health benefits of sesame seeds here
As we all are quite familiar and do use sesame seeds in our cooking like making ladoo and chikki etc.so for me this was the most simple seeds to work with. Even If I had no idea what I am going to cook with them still I was confident enough to come up with some dishes knowing it is Sesame seed. While reading about the history of these seeds I get to know that they are the ancient seeds used in the Arabian Nights stories,”Open Sesame”. Interesting, right??
