Sesame Fried Rice Cake

The aroma of sesame drives me crazy, whether it’s oil heating up or just seeds roasting on a pan or my sesame scented body oil…

Here is my new obsession: Sesame. I have been drizzling sesame oil to whatever I make.  Sometimes sprinkling a dash of roasted sesame seeds on the dishes. The aroma of sesame oil heating up on a pan or seeds getting roasted is driving me insanely crazy. I will breathe in and in until I can hardly breathe in. Not just food, now even my body oil is sesame scented.

Having said that, my husband wasn’t the least bit surprised when I turned fried rice to Sesame fried rice. If rice, I strongly prefer fried rice. To the fried rice when I drizzled little sesame oil and sprinkled a handful of roasted sesame seeds, this turned out to be sheer ecstasy.
