How to make Tahini?

Step 2 – Roast sesame seeds in preheat oven to 350°F for 4-5 minutes. Keep an eye on Sesame seeds. Let it be slightly brown, but not too much otherwise, and you will end up burning the sesame seeds.
Step 3 – Now, take out the seeds and let them cool down. Once all seeds seem to be at normal temperature, shift the seeds to a grinder jar.
Step 4 – You can grind the Sesame seeds finely and use them directly as a deep or Mix it with olive oil and make a smooth paste. Delicious Tahini is ready to serve.
