Turmeric Milk

While growing up in Bangalore, whenever I was suffering from cold and cough, my mom used to give me some hot dairy milk to which a dash of turmeric, salt and crushed black pepper was added. I used to feel so nice drinking hot turmeric milk. Turmeric milk used to provide so much relief for my sore throat.

I guess the magic ingredient "Turmeric" was the key to give me such a relief from the cold. Turmeric is commonly used in Indian cooking. I always use a dash of turmeric in my curries, and sambars.

I no longer get terrible cold and cough, as I don't consume dairy milk. I still love to drink turmeric milk when the weather turns cool. I often make turmeric milk with rice milk.

LOL yeah turmeric is still my first, and often the ONLY, source of medication when I feel even the slightest signs of a cold/sore throat coming on. Except I just have the magic potion in plain old water. Works like a charm! :)

P.S: I'm a Bangalorean too. :)

I think that "Turmeric"Turmeric grows wild in the forests of Southeast Asia. It has become the key ingredient for many Indian, Persian and Thai dishes, not only in curry, but also in many more.so I have tasted this , this is so important to give color to some products!22dd
