The other day I came home to find these lovely golden rhizomes in the kitchen, could not resist taking a picture and sharing it with you all.Turmeric (haldi) is the bright yellow powder commonly used in almost all Indian cooking, its benefits are many, remember when mummy used to give "garam doodh with haldi" (hot milk with turmeric) for healing any illness and also used to apply it on wounds, that's the power of haldi and of course of mother's love.
My mother-in-law made a delicious burfi out of it, using Sugar free since my father-in-law is Diabetic, the rest of the rhizomes were boiled and dried then powdered and would be our next few month's supply of turmeric.
- Whole wheat flour-4 tbs
- Clarified butter(desi ghee)-2 tbsp
- Poppy seeds(khus-khus)-1/2 tsp
- Sugar free natura-acc to taste
- Raw turmeric(grated)-1 tsp
Heat half the ghee and on a slow flame cook the turmeric for 2-3 mins,remove, heat the rest of the ghee and brown the flour, add the rest of the ingredients and remove into a greased plate, garnish with almond slivers if desired.
