Directions:

  1. Dry roast sesame seeds with salt in a frying pan over medium heat until golden brown.
  2. Let cool.
  3. Add sesame seeds, nori and salt to the grinder. (Traditionally a mortar and pestle is used to lightly grind toasted seeds with, I use a coffee-grinder or now my new magic bullet!)
  4. Gently grind to just crack the seeds leaving the mixture mealy, Do not grind to a powder. I know from experience that it is very easy when using an electrical appliance to do grind it too much.
  5. Store in a jar.

I like to use Organic Sesame Seeds and buy lots at the same time at a good price. Also, so I can make double the recipe above and have lots for other cooking.
