Although turmeric has gained popularity as a super spice in western countries recently, it has been in existence in India since ancient times. This ancient spice has its roots in Ayurveda and has been used for its immense health benefits. Perhaps the turmeric milk is one of the most preferred energy drinks recommended by our grannies and as a remedy for almost all possible ailments.

To get the health benefits, just a pinch of turmeric has to be incorporated into the diet. Perhaps, turmeric is one of the most essential spices used in Indian cuisine. It not only provides immense health benefits but also a lovely hue to the dishes such as Lemon Rice, Bombay Chutney, Methi Malai Paneer. Turmeric Ginger Cinnamon tea is a healthy alternative to caffeine drinks. 

Pepper enhances the power of curcumin present in turmeric. It further helps the absorption of antibiotics by the body and induces anti-inflammatory actions. Ghee helps to get relief from sore throat and cough. Moreover according to Ayurveda, consuming milk with ghee helps to boost digestive strength.

Turmeric Milk Recipe Variations

For the vegan version, substitute dairy milk with coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk. Substitute honey with maple syrup, coconut sugar or jaggery. Swap coconut oil for ghee.

Add a pinch of ground cinnamon to impart a floral aroma and subtle flavour without overpowering the turmeric flavour.

Try adding a pinch of crushed cardamom to add a lovely warm flavour and aroma.
