Tahina or Tahini is a quintessential part of Arab cuisine. Mostly used as a mezza or dip, it is typically made out of sesame paste, hot water, a touch of vinegar, lemon juice and a pinch of cumin.
As pallets have evolved and fusion has become the latest trend, we have seen different variations of this old recipe. I have decided to change up how you see this absolutely scrumptious dip in to a few recipes you didn’t even know possible.
