Teel Badam Bata / Sesame Seeds and Groundnut Condiment

This condiment is almost like a palate cleanser. Often you crave for a simple yet a zesty taste. This condiment has the right balance of simplicity and flavours. It is exotic  and smoking. Just a spoonful is enough to bring a difference to your meal. I have also often enjoyed it with ghee smeared paratha or oil smeared roti (Indian flatbread).
