Banar Mixed Sesame Seeds

Banar Mixed Sesame Seeds

Nutty, Sweet, Slight Bitterness

Size: 1 lb Bag

Packed with nutrients, healthy fats, and protein, our sesame seeds come from a farm in Banar, which is in the province of Rajasthan, India. You'll find these little gems sprinkled on everything from bagels and breadsticks to stir-fries and salads, adding a delicious, nutty taste and a satisfying crunch. They can be eaten raw, but toasting brings out their full flavor. Sesame seeds also play a starring role in tahini, which is the main ingredient in hummus. Interesting fact: A ¼ cup of sesame seeds has more calcium than an 8-ounce glass of milk!


Whole Black and White Sesame Seeds


Rajasthan, India

Ram Chaudhary is a third-generation farmer in Banar, a village in the Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, India. Located on the edge of the Thar Desert, Rajasthan has an incredibly diverse topology, with fertile terrain well-suited to farming. It is here that Chaudhary has cultivated sesame seeds, millets, and green gram for over 10 years using organic farming methods. With our help, he is currently in the process of applying for organic certification.

Tips for Success

  • Toasting sesame seeds before using them will enhance their nutty flavor and aroma. Simply spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in a preheated oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Be sure to stir them occasionally to ensure even toasting.
  • Use sesame seeds in baking to add flavor and texture to breads, muffins, and cookies. They can also be used to coat the exterior of baked goods for added crunch.
  • You can also grind sesame seeds in a food processor or mortar and pestle to make a paste. Mix with other ingredients like soy sauce, vinegar, and honey for a tasty dipping sauce.


How old are these spices?

We purchase what we need every year right after the spices are harvested. These spices are as fresh as you can get. They are not sitting in a warehouse for multiple years. The oldest spices we carry will be one year old compared to the commodity market which warehouses spices for 10+ years before selling them to you.

Are these spices certified organic?

Unfortunately we do not have any certifications at this time but most of our spices are organically grown and all of them are non gmo. Each ingredient can be traced back to its origin. Email for any questions.
