What Is Sesame Oil?

Sesame oil, known as goma abura in Japanese, is a key ingredient in many dishes across the globe. Sesame oil comes in two main forms: light and toasted. Light sesame oil is made from raw sesame seeds, while toasted sesame oil is made from roasted sesame seeds. Light sesame oil can be used for deep frying, but toasted sesame oil burns too easily. Toasted sesame oil is darker and stronger in flavor. Although both types of sesame oil are used in traditional cuisines across Asia and the Middle East, most Asian cuisine leans toward the amber-colored and more aromatic toasted sesame oil.

How To Cook With Sesame Oil

Sesame oil and sesame seeds are used in a variety of ways in cooking. The most common uses of sesame oil are in sauces, marinades, and seasoning. Many dishes have sesame oil as a base, including pad thai, bulgogi, mapo tofu,and hiyashi chuka.
