Toasted Curry Sesame Seeds

Are you ready for a trip? No, not in the car silly. In our minds… and mouths! That’s right, we’re taking a flavor trip to the other side of the world, India! If there’s one cuisine on Earth that’s synonymous with big bold flavors and loads of spice, it would be Indian. That’s probably why the Toasted Curry Sesame Seeds are one of our favorite offerings! Adding them to any dish will guarantee a huge burst of flavor that transports you right to Mumbai itself!

Our Toasted Curry Sesame Seeds are produced in Japan, where they undergo a labor intensive process of saucing and toasting over and over again until they reach peak crispiness and flavor intensity. Curry, as you may know is not a spice itself, but rather a blend of spices that can differ from cook to cook and restaurant to restaurant. The curry seeds in particular are coated with a heady blend of cumin, turmeric, garlic, and ginger. The combination is intense and aromatic. When added to food and dishes, they add a massive punch of flavor.

Given the intensity of the flavor profile, you might think that it would be difficult to pair with foods, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you want a quick and easy application, it makes a fantastic topper for salads and sandwiches. Fold some into your next batch of chicken salad and you’ve got a seriously show stopping sandwich! On the flipside, you could top dishes of braised chicken  or lamb, whole roasted fish, or even roasted carrots. All would be incredible with the added pops of curry flavor. For a super easy addition, try adding to a store bought hummus! Every bite of carrot and broccoli will zing with authentic curry flavor.

The possibilities are endless with this one, and whether it’s a simple mid-day snack or a complex Saturday night meal, you can rest assured that Toasted Curry Sesame Seeds are going to make your latest creating something exotic and memorable. You don’t always have to get in your car to take a trip! Now you can do it by simply opening a jar of our toasted sesame seeds. The world await – let’s go on a flavor journey!
