Its not Sesame Street...well, its seeds. Its unique. Its fragrant after you toasted them. I love to eat them ... the toasted allready or as chocolate-peanut-sesame martabak (asian thick pancake, very famous in Indonesia). I have been making Black Sesame Paste a couple days ago, to complete the mini eclair's order (read the post after this post) . Well...its kind hard to find black sesame paste here in Jakarta, so i try to make it. The first time i only used (Only) black sesame seeds. But i found it too bitter, less that unique-i love-taste. So i change some with white sesame seeds. And...i got the taste! i dont know if black sesame paste was made from 100% of black sesame seeds or not. So, please, if any of you knowing about this, just leave me a note.
The Sesame Seeds
This is my homemade Black (or Black and white? since i used both of them) Sesame Paste. I have only tried it to mixed with custard to fill the mini eclair (very yummy!). I still have the paste in my refrigerator so i think i will make some of mousse, cookies and sponge cake. i am curious...can wait to put my apron and the oven on!
