Homemade Tahini (Tahina)

I have to go to a kid's Halloween party this weekend. I have signed up to bring kids friendly appetizers. I wanted to make hummus, but I didn't have any Tahini at home. Instead of running to a store and looking for Tahini (we don't get it in all stores), I thought of making it at home and saving me some time. I was quiet pleased with the end result. You can view my hummus recipe here.

Makes a little less than 1 cup.

1 Cup Sesame Seeds
1/4 to 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Dry roast the sesame seeds on very low flame until fragrant (about 7-10 minutes). Stir frequently while roasting and do not let it brown. Let it cool.

Add the sesame seeds and 1/4 cup oil in the food processor. Grind it to a fine thick paste. Add more oil as needed. Grind again to mix things well. Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
