Brief description:

Turmeric is a perennial plant of the ginger family that reaches a meter in height, looks like a reed, and its large oval leaves grow directly from the rhizome. It is these roots-potatoes that are valued as a spice.

The taste of turmeric combines sharpness, light burning and astringency with subtle ginger notes, shades of musk, young leaves and the freshness of midday herbs.
The smell of freshly ground turmeric from Masale is pleasant, spicy and mild.

The powder prepared from the roots of turmeric (haridra) is rich yellow in color, which can have a golden, terracotta tint. If you add lemon juice to this spice, turmeric will acquire a bright red color. Added to dishes, turmeric gives them a bright yellow color and a fresh persistent aroma.

The use of turmeric in cooking
  • For rice, pilaf, various curries, and legume dishes
  • An excellent seasoning for egg dishes, sauces, soups, lamb, fish
  • As a dye for marinades, butter and cheeses, as well as in the production of mustard
  • To give a bright taste and color to bakery products, cakes
  • Gives products freshness and increases their shelf life.

If you are not a fan of this spice, then at first it is recommended to add it to food in small quantities, literally on the tip of a knife per kilogram of rice. If you overdo it with turmeric, you risk getting a bitter burning taste of the dish

Application of turmeric root in medicine

We have always liked the oriental saying: “Let your food be your medicine”, and it is turmeric with its natural healing properties that can not only decorate your dishes, giving them an exquisite oriental aroma, but also is a reliable assistant proven for centuries in the fight against many diseases.

If you didn’t know, turmeric is the closest relative of ginger, but turmeric, unlike ginger, contains such an amount of curcumin that the use of just one pinch of this spice per day noticeably changes the state of health for the better, thanks to the main “trump card” turmeric – its ability to cleanse the body of toxins.

Today, this is one of the few spices on whose medicinal properties scientists all over the world place great hopes. It is this spice that gives people hope in finding a cure for such serious diseases as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

In addition to useful macro- and microelements, turmeric root contains:
