Roasted sesame seed oil - cham girum참기름

Other Staple Korean Ingredients

Like most good Asian sesame seed oils, Korean roasted sesame oil is leagues ahead of anything you will find in a Western supermarket, you simply could not even compare the two ingredients, the former having a much more intense and pure nutty flavour. As with all of these store cupboard ingredients it keeps for months on end, so it is well worth buying. Roasted sesame seeds are also heavily used in Korean cooking, and you can buy ready roasted, good quality Korean sesame seeds in Asian markets.
