Turmeric | Haldi

Turmeric or Haldi


Turmeric is similar to ginger. Unlike ginger, Turmeric is boiled, dried and used in the powder form. Turmeric gives an intense yellowish color , a sort of woody flavor, and scent to food. Almost all Indian vegetable and meat dishes use turmeric either as separate spice or in the spice mixture.

The use of turmeric dates back nearly 4000 years to the ancient Vedic culture of India. Since then, it has been used as important spice, beauty product and in religious ceremonies.
