So, what is سمسم?

Sesame, also known as "sim sim" in Arabic, is a nutrient-rich seed that has been used for thousands of years as a culinary and medicinal ingredient. Sesame seeds are small, flat, and have a slightly nutty taste. They come in a variety of colors, from cream to black. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, and zinc. They are commonly used in Middle Eastern, Asian, and African cuisines, where they are added to bread, dips, sauces, and desserts. Sesame oil, made from roasted sesame seeds, is a popular cooking oil in many cultures. Sesame seeds also have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving heart health, and promoting healthy digestion.
