1) Do not brown the seeds or burn them.If you over toast the seeds the powder might taste bitter.
2) You can use white or brown sesame seeds for making this powder.When using brown sesame seeds keep an eye on the seeds while toasting because the color might be deceiving.
3) Use red chilly according to your taste.You can increase the spice or reduce it too.
4) This powder stays fresh for 15 days.
