Tahini Sauce Recipe – Perfect dipping sauce for falafel or drizzle over the falafel sandwiches.
This tahini sauce is made from tahini paste aka sesame paste with addition of couple more ingredients. And those are lemon juice and garlic.
If you have tahini ready, it will take 5 minutes only. Just mix all the ingredients and sauce is ready to serve. Here I have used homemade tahini, but you can sure go for store bought one for quicker option.
The water is added to make saucy consistency. Adjust the amount of water as needed. If using to spread on sandwich or pita bread then keep little thick. If using as a salad dressing then keep it runny and slightly thin.
It has slight punch of garlic with nice tangy lemony flavor. This lemon cuts down the richness and slight bitterness of tahini.
at home we love this sipping sauce other than hummus.
