Strengthener for WinterAyurveda knows sesame as a strengthener. Its luscious, unctuous nature fortifies immunity, protects those with debility, and deeply feeds bodily tissue. Sesame helps to contain body heat, reinforces the blood, and strengthens the bones, muscles, and even the willpower. Those who fear winter and the bone-chilling drop in temperatures will find great comfort in this healing food. If you can't shake your wintertime chill, if you feel tired and dry from autumn until spring, these Vata signs could mean your body is exhausted and depleted. Sesame may be the food medicine for you, especially when mixed with a warming, stimulating pinch of ginger.
MoisturizerThe seeds' high oil content lubricates and protects tissues, stabilizing with richness. A diet rich in sesame will moisturize the hair and skin, promote milk production in women, and energize the reproductive organs of all. Suffer from constipation, or dry, pellet-like stool? The warming nature of sesame will promote better digestion and help lubricate the intestines. Ghee augments the richness of this recipe.

Great recipe! Next time I will experiment with roasting the sesame seeds and maybe also mix in some sunflower seeds :)
