I have a couple of recipes that I've been eager to try that call for toasted sesame oil. I swear that I'vebeen to a half dozen Asian supermarkets and none of them carry it. Does anyone out there know who does?
As far as I know, all the Asian sesame oils are toasted/roasted, hence the dark brown colour. It's only the Middle Eastern sesame oils that are "raw", hence the very light colour.
i believe i got mine at pusateri fruit and veg on church street.whole foods should have it too, they have loads of oils.
p.s. it adds really great flavour!
Yes, TorontoJo is right. Any asian sesame oil is toasted. As long as it is dark in colour, you`re good!
Ah..thank you all. I guess I've been using it all this time without knowing it was "toasted".
Kadoya brand sesame oil seems to be everywhere, even Loblaws.
Yes this is the only brand my family will buy.This is what it looks likehttp://www.amazon.com/Kadoya-Pure-Ses...
Agree, Kadoya tastes best and is widely available
I bought PC brand "Pure Sesame Oil" in a pinch and find it quite good. It is lighter but with a very nice nutty sesame flavour. Anyone else like it?
The PC is pretty good - until you taste Kadoya.
Agreed. Kadoya is my preferred brand. I bought a big tin at H Mart in Richmond Hill for $12.99 (sale). It's going to last forever :)
I'm sure I've seen it at Loblaws. Definitely at T&T.
Thanks, I'll definitely give Kadoya a try.
I bought mine in a regular Fortino's in Brampton. Wasn't difficult to find at all.
