It is recommended to consume this soup few times per week as breakfast meal. Black sesame contains a lot of calcium.

*Advice for cooking the black sesame: in a dry pan, add the black sesame with a little white sesame. Cook it until the white sesame has turned yellow. This means that the black sesame has cooked enough. Mix everything, turn off the heat, let cool and finish by crushing everything until it makes a relatively compact paste.
Here are the steps to follow to prepare this soup for 3 or 4 people:
1. Put the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
2. Put the sesame in a large bowl.
3. Add the nuts to the sesame and mix.
4. Add the flour to the sesame and nut mixture, mix.
