There is something in Sesame oil that makes you feel entrapped. The scent. Anybody who has smelled it out of bottle will know what I am talking about. I simply love the smell of Sesame oil than say, lavender. It is mouth watering and very addictive. In Korean cooking, it is used to make salad dressing, dipping sauce, seasoning for soups, etc. It will add special taste and aroma to your dish.
Sesame oil has now become quite mainstream that you could easily find it in big grocery chain stores in the US or gourmet markets. I even saw it in William-Sonoma store the other day.
