Tahini or tahina is a sesame paste made from only sesame seeds and a little of oil. This is the essential ingredient for a delicious hummus or baba ghanoush, respectively chickpea and eggplant. dips It can also be used in sweet dishes, such as sesame halva, wich I like a lot with the pistachio.
Although you can buy tahini already prepared in specialized stores, I am not used to have it conditioning at home, because I use it only occasionally. However, I always have sesame seeds. That is why I prepare it just when I need it. Two tablespoons are enough to make hummus. Normally, I choose to use the mortar for a small quantity and the coffee grinder when I need a lot.
