  • Food processor or high powdered blender


  • 1 cup raw white sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • Heat a pan and add the measured sesame seeds.
  • Dry roast in low flame for 5 minutes. Keep sauteing to avoid burning the seeds.

  • Add to a food processor or blender jar and blend in high speed for few seconds or until the seeds turn crumbly.
  • Now add olive oil in stages and blend until creamy and light.
  • Store tahini in clean dry jar and use as required.


  • Make sure to roast the sesame seeds in low flame. Keep stirring and sauteing as the seeds can go from roasted to burnt very quickly.
