Ktung shira, sla rynsun and nei lieh

Fried "ktung shira" (dried fish) mixed with "sla rynsun" (garlic leaves), "nei lieh" (white sesame seeds/ white til), chilli and salt.
This side dish of the humble ktung shira, sla rynsun and nei lieh contains three distinct flavours which go oh so well together! 😋😋😋 It is a great addition to lunch or dinner. 🍴🍴
Does anyone know the exact English name for our Khasi "nei lieh" and "nei iong"? Because sesame and til are actually bigger varieties of seeds 🤔🤔 Perhaps "nei lieh" and "nei iong" are a more indigenous variety?
