Turmeric is a plant that is native to Southwest India. The roots of the plant are dried and ground into a powder that is yellow in color. Turmeric has been used in Indian cuisine for centuries as a spice and coloring agent. It has a warm, slightly bitter taste and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Turmeric is also known for its medicinal properties. It has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including colds, stomach upset, and arthritis. The compound that gives turmeric its distinctive color, curcumin, is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Turmeric is an essential ingredient in many Indian dishes, such as curries and daals. It can also be used to add color and flavor to rice, soups, and stews. Turmeric combines very well with other spices with the same complimentary flavour style, such as ginger, cinnamon, garlic, black pepper, or cumin.
