  • 3.5 cups black sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt optional


  • First, blend the black sesame seeds in a high-speed food processor/blender just enough to obtain a crumbly paste.
  • Then pour in the sesame oil and blend again till you have a smooth consistency. The longer you blend, the runnier the paste will be
  • This can then be stored in an airtight glass container and kept in the fridge for up to a month.



You can toast the black sesame if you prefer to release the oils especially if you don't have a hight speed processor, however, I didn't do that.
