Homemade Tahini Paste Recipe / How to Make Tahini at Home


Tahini, whenever you look for any recipes from the lebanese cuisine, one of the main ingredient which it calls for is tahini. It may sound like a exotic ingredient but it is basically ground sesame seed with olive oil to a smooth paste. It can be found easily online or in any hyper super market. But it is quite expensive. I can never think of spending so many bucks on a stuff which can be easily made at home. So here you go, I am delivering you the super simple recipe for the exotic tahini..
