Turmeric features in the list of treasures in the North-eastern part of India. Turmeric is used generally as a powder to add flavour and colour to food. It is believed that the raw turmeric is much more beneficial regarding the anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, anti-ageing and cardio-protective properties attributed to turmeric. The raw turmeric is used by boiling in water, with milk, in salads, or simply added to any dish. The ingredient Curcumin is thought to be largely destroyed in processing the raw turmeric to its powdered form. Raw turmeric is a beautiful orange-gold colour and I do love the flavour and colour it adds to any food.
