 Sesame rice is a flavourful dish which can be prepared during weekends or for a quick lunch. It is ideal during festivities since it has no onion or garlic in it.

The ingredients needed  to prepare sesame rice are few and mostly found in all kitchen shelves. Roasting and grinding of ingredients are the only other tasks involved here.
