Golden, toasty, nutty flavour
This is just a general how to toast sesame seeds – nothing special.
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Heat pan on Low - Medium heat. See attached.
Enough sesame seeds to cover the base of your pan. Bigger pan = more heat = more sesame seeds
You can go darker than this, but this is just about where I like it - Expect nutty flavours
Heat pan for a bit on medium heat
- It's ready when you sprinkle water on the base and it evaporates *
Add desired amount of sesame seeds - enough to cover the base of pan you're using, don't add too much or they wont toast evenly.
Move pan every few seconds
- Keeping an eye on them, they'll go from pale within a few minutes
- If you don't move them they'll burn on 1 side
Use in salads, sauces, bread dough, stir-fry, sushi - go wild.
Can be stored in an airtight container for weeks.
*This is universal for almost any frying*
