Zambia Sesame Seed Sauce

Sesame seeds or Sesamum indicum grow in tropical regions of Africa including Zambia.  


Sesame seeds are one of the oldest crops processed for oil and are yellow or black colored seeds. Zambia sesame seed sauce is a thick paste similar in texture to peanut butter but made from sesame seeds. 

Tahini is also a paste made from ground sesame seeds used primarily in Middle Eastern cooking. Zambian sesame seed sauce is an easy African food recipe for a dip used for fritters and slices of bread and as a sauce for poultry.
