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! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ It is a great addition to lunch or dinner. ๐Ÿด๐Ÿด
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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” Perhaps "nei lieh" and "nei iong" are a more indigenous variety?
