  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 3 turnips, cut into chunks

  • Pomegranate seeds, to be served

For tahini:

  • ½ cup of SINOLIN oil
  • 100 grams of sesame seeds
  • 160 gram of yoghurt
  • ½ lemon, juiced


  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add onions, garlic, salt and sugar. Cook for 5 minutes until it starts to soften and gently stir. Add sweet potato, turnips, barley, carrots, lemon juice, salt, sugar and water. Stir gently and bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Add turmeric powder, cook until the barley is soft.
  2. Cook for about 3 minutes until the vegetables and barley are coated with spices. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

How to make Tahini:

  1. Rinse raw sesame seeds in a fine sieve. Shake and let drip until dry. (if you feel that the sesame seeds are clean enough, you can skip this step though.
  2. Place the sesame seeds on a baking sheet. Put it into the oven.
  3. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes at 170ºC. Often flip sesame seeds to prevent them from burning. Sesame seeds are ready for use when the color turns to a light brown color evenly.
  4. Remove from the oven andcool down completely.
  5. Put the sesame seeds into the food processor. Pour one-quarter cup of oil into the food processor.
  6. Puree at full speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Stop this process for some time to repress the non-moving seeds into the other seed mixture to smooth. (Use a spatula to suppress it).
  7. Pour the remaining oil (if necessary). Puree again for 2 to 3 minutes, fixed while making sure all sesame seeds are smooth.



In a plate, serve vegetable barley and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and celery leaves, and do not forget the tahini that you already made before. Enjoy
