Cooking With Seeds~~Announcing A New Event

After guest hosting few events, i was planning to start an event based with seeds, coz my cooking never been completed without seeds, i cant imagine my pantry without coriander seeds,poppy seeds, cumin,peppercorns etc..So our Indian cuisine is always basically prepared with seeds, thats why am here with an event called 'Cooking With Seeds'.

Many seeds are edible and the majority human calories comes from seeds especially from cereals, legumes and nuts..Seeds also provide most of the cooking oil, many beverages, spices etc...Edible seeds can be beans or legumes, cereals or grains, nuts and gymnosperms (nut like seeds but not flowers or fruits)...

So we have a huge choice of seeds to cook and enjoy our food na!! voila i want to announce a new event to cook beautiful dishes based with seeds..For this month i choosed a seed which can be either yellowish, black and used in breads, stir fries, pastries very common in Jewish, Chinese and Middle Easter dishes..

This month seed is gonna be the famous 'Sesame Seeds', which is probably a oldest crop grown for its tastes dating back 2000years to China..Sesame seeds was imported from India to Europe during the first centry and the Persians used sesame oil as before they start using olive oil..Sesame seeds contains sesamin and sesamolin substance that is believed to prevent high blood pressure and a good source of vitamin E which helps to strengthen the heart and nervous system..Half cup of sesame seeds contains 3 times more calcium in a half cup of whole milk..
