Happy Ayurveda Day!

Called Haldi in Hindi, turmeric comes from the root of Curcuma Longa, a leafy plant related to ginger.

It has a bright yellow color and a pungent, warm, earthy aroma and taste.

Although it becomes bitter if too much used.

It is mildly antiseptic.

Turmeric is an essential spice in Indian food, giving a rich, appetizing color.

It is used in curries, fish dishes and with beans because of it’s digestive properties.

Research show that turmeric inhibits blood clotting, reduces liver toxins, and helps the liver metabolize fats and so aids weight loss.

Khud Khao, Sabko Khilao 😀
