Turmeric native to south east India and is a member of the rhizome family, a root, along with ginger and galangal. It has an amazing yellow golden hue and has been an important part of Asian and in particular Indian cooking for thousands of centuries – known for its many medicinal properties.
Turmeric greatly enhances the digest function when used in a recipe much like asafoetida. It should be used in most savoury dishes, particularly when cooking potatoes, lentils, green vegetables, meat, chicken and fish. Fresh turmeric is also used as a pickle in dishes such as piccalilli and most commercial mustards both as a preservative and as a flavour enhancer.
