*Certain varieties of blenders are capable of blending nuts or seeds till oil starts coming out(e.g. Sumeet, vitamix), but some of the blender needs liquid to process the contents. In that case you might need to add oil or water. If you add water, it will give similar results but shelf life will be shorter.
