my fav chilhood snack. u have done it so well

suhaina aji said...

just a simple doubt. why do u add 1/2 cup water to sesame and then dry roast it? can u not dry roast it directly?

divya said...

hi suhaina aji,when u add water to sesame seeds when its fry it nicely pops up and nicely fry as well.u can fry directly but my mom said when u add water it give good flavor.
