  • Black sesame seeds as needed
  1. Pick out the impurities from the seeds and then soak with clean water in order to remove the floating ones.
  2. Wash under running water over a sifter or something similar and then drain
  3. Heat up a pan over medium fire, place the sesame seeds in; slow the fire to lowest heat and keep stirring continually until you can smell the aroma and the seeds are slightly popping. It may take around 3-5 minutes for one cup of sesame seeds.
  4. Transfer out to a larger pan to cool directly, otherwise the heat of the pan might burn them and further resulting a bitter taste.
