My Spice Box

Ooi’s remedy

I am Chinese but I grew up in Malaysia. Sesame is popular with Chinese people. Sesame seeds and oil are used for cooking because of the calcium, which is good for the bones. To help prevent osteoporosis, cook food with two tablespoons of sesame oil.

Origin: Native to India. There is archaeological evidence that it was cultivated at Harappa in the Indus Valley between 2250 and 1750 BC.
