Turmeric, also known as Curcuma, tastes mildly-spicy and slightly bitter.
The use of turmeric itself can be dated back to a time of about 4000 years ago.
The plant has always been considered sacred and was one of the most important spices in ancient India.
In the traditional Ayurveda, it is counted among the "hot" spices, which are said to have a purifying and energizing effect.
Turmeric gives food an intense yellow color and provides it with its spicy, slightly earthy-bitter taste. Indeed, Tumeric brings a special aroma into every meal.
Especially in Indian cuisine, it is used in many traditional dishes.
You can find it as an ingredient in almost every good curry, pancake or vegetable garnish like fried eggplant.
Turmeric also tastes good in drinks - for example, a smoothie or the ayurvedic supplemental well-beeing drink.
This drink is called: "The golden Milk".
Italian pastry or Moroccan dishes can be refined with Curcuma.
If turmeric is heated, the aroma will develop best!
Recipe for the beauty product from India - the golden milk
Recipe for the paste
1/4 cup turmeric
3/4 cup of pure still water
Put water in a saucepan, mix with turmeric and heat.
Simmer for about 11 minutes over low heat.
The result will be a paste.
Allow the paste to cool and fill it into a clean, sealable glass container.
The paste can be consumed within more or less 3 weeks, therefore it must always be kept in the fridge.
Recipe for making the golden milk
Pour 1 cup of milk in a saucepan.
Alternatively, you can also use oat milk, almond milk, or soy milk.
Add one teaspoon of turmeric paste, which you're previously had prepared, to it.
Whisk everything together and warm it up.
Add some freshly grounded black pepper and Indian butter, the so-called ghee (= clarified butter) or a mild oil, e.g. almond oil.
Through the addition of butterfat or oil, the Tumeric's effect can unfold itself best.
For example, a cup of golden milk can be enjoyed as a nightcap in the evening.
For a detox cure, enjoy the golden milk regularly for about three months.
