Culinary Uses

  • Sesame oil is commonly used for tempering, as a flavour enhancer, lubricant and preservative in south Indian cuisine.
  • Since sesame oil is almost tasteless and odourless, it is a good choice for baking.
  • It is widely used as a salad oil and is also the main ingredient in the production of margarine
  • Sesame oil is used in the manufacture of pickles.
  • Light sesame oil has a high smoke point, and is suitable for deep-frying. However, heavy (dark) sesame oil made from roasted sesame seeds has a slightly lower smoke point and is unsuitable for deep-frying. Instead it can be used for stir-frying vegetables, making of omelette, etc.
