Spices are at the heart of Indian cuisine but one spice that has put India on the global map is turmeric (haldi). Turmeric milk became famous as turmeric latte across the globe and we woke up to the various benefits that the spice offers. Turmeric, also known as 'golden spice', has been posited as one of the most beneficial foods, which not only provides its immunity-boosting properties but also adds colour and taste to the food. The nutty flavour with an underlying hint of earthiness makes our food better. But if you want to continue reaping the benefits of turmeric-based drinks in summer, warm 'haldi wala doodh' is not the only option.
You can make for yourself some cooling, hydrating and immunity-boosting turmeric-based drinks pinging with bags of flavours. Be as generous with the amount of turmeric as your palate can allow.
