What is GHANI?

GHANI is a machine being used in India since last 4000 years to extract oil from sesame at very low temperature. It was driven by bullocks. The historians have found out that even in 2000 BC, mortar and pestle of GHANI were made of stone and granite and such GHANIs were used in India for extraction of oil from sesame. Later on it was made of wood.

Half million GHANIs were in operation throughout India even upto 1955. But with the advent of oil expeller technology, almost all GHANIs were closed down. But still some GHANIs are running which are now made of iron and steel and it is driven by 2 HP motor.

What is SANI?

SANI is the most nutritious and most delicious sweet product made of sesame and jaggery. SANI is made in GHANI machine. Though SANI is made of sesame and jaggery, it is not only mixture of sesame and jaggery. It is far more than that. Sesame is crushed into the GHANI and when oil is liberated from the cells of the sesame seeds and actual flow of oil is seen, jaggery is added and then it is thoroughly mixed with oily sesame in the GHANI machine. Then pasty crystaline sweet product called SANI becomes ready. It gives very good desirable flavour. So SANI is composed of sesame, its oil and jaggery.

How to prepare SANI?

6 kg. of sesame seeds are crushed in to GHANI. It is very gradual process of grinding the seeds. After about 8 to 10 minutes, water upto 8% of the weight of sesame is sprinkled. i.e. about 700 ml. of water is added in to the sesame being crushed. Then after 3 to 4 minutes oil will be liberated from the sesame seeds and soon it will start flowing from the top of the cone where pestle is pressing the seeds. When such clear flow of oil is seen, 6 kg. of jaggery is added in to the GHANI. Then GHANI is allowed to run for about 5 to 7 minutes until sesame and jaggery is thoroughly mixed. Then 15 kg. of SANI will be ready. Then it is taken out. Total cycle time will be about 20 to 22 minutes. Thus 300 kg. to 350 kg. SANI can be prepared in 8 hours.
