We love this Goma (sesame seed in Japanese language) Dressing.
Usually we would just grab a bottle from the store since I was not aware that it is doable at home.
With this recipe shared by Just One Cookbook, there won't be a need to pick this up from the shop anymore. It is also great $ savings because one bottle costs about RM9 thereabout, unless there's an offer, then it would be RM1 cheaper.
With the money, I would be able to get plentiful of homemade Sesame Dressing that would last me like a month of so if I were to eat this everyday.
The store-bought bottle would only like be able to last us less than a week, and that's not daily consumption also.
I am submitting this to AFF#1 - Japan

3 tbsp white sesame seeds
2 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise *I used homemade mayonnaise*
2 tbsp rice vinegar *I used River Bridge brand*
1 1/2 tbsp light soya sauce *I used LKK brand*
1 tsp sugar *I used soft brown sugar*
1/2 tsp mirin
1/2 tsp sesame oil *I used black sesame oil*
a pinch of salt
1/ Fry sesame seeds in a frying pan over low heat stirring it all the time to prevent it from burning until sesame seeds starts to get plump and jump.
2/ Remove sesame seeds from heat immediately and let it cool for a bit.
3/ Place the sesame seeds into a plastic bag and pound to grind it into fine powder.
4/ Combine everything in a bowl and whisk until homogeneous.
5/ Serve with salad and store the rest in the fridge.
p/s: We found this a little too sourish for us, so I added one more teaspoon of sugar, thus in total I used 2 teaspoon of sugar.
