Sesame Oil Powder Recipe

Seasame powder

An easy way to get started with molecular gastronomy or modernist cuisine is through the creation of tapioca maltodextrin powders. Tapioca maltodextrin is simply a extremely fine powder that acts as a thickener when mixed with fat. This sesame powder recipe comes together really quickly and is a great visual addition to many dishes. It also adds an interesting textural element to more traditional plates. It can be used with any dish that a drizzle of sesame oil would go well with, including many Asian foods.

For more examples of tapioca maltodextrin powders you can read the excellent Alinea cookbook.

If you would like more information about the modernist techniques, ingredients, and equipment used in the sesame oil powder recipe you can check out the following.

If you like this recipe you can get more than 80 other recipes from my book Modernist Cooking Made Easy: Getting Started. The book covers many of the popular modernist techniques such as gelling, spherification, and foams. It also explores modernist ingredients like agar, sodium alginate, tapioca maltodextrin, and xanthan gum. It is all presented in an easy to understand format and I think it's the best way to learn about modernist cooking.

Also, if you are just getting started experimenting with molecular gastronomy and modernist cuisine then I highly recommend one of these molecular gastronomy kits. They have everything you need to do many different dishes.

At least 30 minutes before serving

Pour the sesame oil into a bowl large enough to comfortably hold it. Whisk in the salt.

To turn the sesame oil into powder begin to whisk in the tapioca maltodextrin. Once it begins to thicken and clump you can add it in more slowly. Continue to add tapioca maltodextrin while whisking until it forms a powder the consistency you are looking for. The actual amount will also depend on the quality and type of sesame oil you use.
