After all the new year celebrations, coming up is Makar Sankrant and Lohri where sesame seeds plays a major role in most of the delicious dishes! These festivals hold a great association with sesame seeds, which are also known as til. Sesame seeds are bundle of energy and also considered to be one of the richest sources of iron in Indian vegetarian cooking. Apart from iron, sesame seeds also contain dietary copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B1, vitamin, E, protein, and fiber. With all these benefits and their delicious nutty and earthy flavour, sesame seeds easily gel with jaggery and sugar and also are used in variety of savoury dishes!!

Well….so this January, lets get together and create some innovative recipes using sesame seeds. Join this month's recipe contest and win a cookbook on Lebanese.For an innovative sesame seeds recipe,click here
