Jartila (जर्तिल) refers to a wild variety of sesame according to Śatapathabrāhmaṇa IX.1.1.3, and is commonly found in literature dealing with the topics of dietetics and culinary art, also known as Pākaśāstra or Pākakalā.—We cannot find any mention of oil or oil seed in Ṛgveda.

Jartila (जर्तिल, ‘wild sesamum’) is mentioned in the Taittirīya Saṃhitā (v. 4, 3, 2) as an unsuitable sacrificial offering.
