This Sesame Seeds Chutney is very easy and tasty chutney made with sesame seeds. It is spicy in taste with the nutty flavour of sesame seeds. Sesame which is also known as”Til”. The sesame seeds are naturally rich in calcium. They are also a rich source of minerals like copper and manganese. This chutney pairs very well with idlis, dosa or even parathas or pakoras.
For this chutney, I used soaked sesame seeds because soaking sesame seeds before eating allows you to germinate the seeds, which aids in digestion. It also expels any latent toxins within the seeds. Soaking sesame seeds also promotes the absorption of minerals to your body. It also discourages the presence of phytic acid, which is thought to make the seeds taste bitter and lower their nutritional benefits.
