Haldi doodh

                              Turmeric milk has become much popular in Western countries in recent times due to the properties of turmeric.The milk is being sold as  “Turmeric latte” and is going viral everywhere.We sometimes tend to neglect our own age old recipes which has been passed by our ancestors,and that’s why I decided to document this most common but almost neglected and forgotten recipe in our blog.
This is the first home remedy I prefer during the onset of Monsoon,Winters and when I see the first symptoms of cough or cold.I prepare this often during such times specially before bedtime at night.Do start preparing such drinks which are not only healthy but has some medicinal properties too.

  1. 1 cup or glass of milk previously boiled
  2. 1/2 cup of water
  3. Few pieces of crystal sugar(kade sakkar/kal sakkar/mishri)
  4. 2-3 dried turmeric pods
  • Warm the milk adding water and add turmeric pods and leave for a while.
  • Once the pods are bit soft,add the crystal sugar and boil for 10-15 minutes on very low flame.
  • Strain and serve hot immediately.
  1. I recommend using pods instead of powder,in case you don’t have pods use powder ,but make sure the powder is fresh and unadulterated.
  2. Boiling for 10 -12 minutes is recommended to get maximum benefits using the turmeric pods.
  3. Again using crystal sugar is good,especially if you get the red variety as it is believed to be very beneficial for kids.
  4. Kids and adults can have this drink anytime of the day.
  5. Some prefer adding honey or pepper powder and some tulsi leaves too while boiling for additional benefits
