Tahini Recipe

All I knew about Tahini that it is one of the most important ingredient in Hummus.

Tahini Recipe

I used to buy it regularly from shop until I found this super easy recipe. I don’t remember how many times I bought it from super market and wasted money(collectively). So here is my learning : Always check the ingredient lists mentioned at the label even if you buy it regularly :)  Why ? May be it is easy to make it at home then driving to mall and buy it. I should not blame myself, sometimes we are just not aware ( or don’t care) :).

This inspired me to start a new category in my blog, where I am going to put all my recipes of the basic dishes/meal/sauces/breads  which you normally buy from Shop but can be made easily at home. How about category Money-Saving Recipes ? I agreed that you cannot make everything at home for sake of saving money.  But you can really save a big chunk of money if you can manage to make some ingredients and dishes at home.

I have already put some of my recipes under this new section. Check it out Money-Saving Recipes.

Please let me know you views and ideas. Lets make this more informative.
