Turmeric or Haldi has been one of India's most prized possessions since time immemorial. Now that the world I also waking up to its healing effects and health benefits, it would be a rookie mistake to think of the golden spice as a mere coloring agent for curries. Turmeric is replete with anti-inflammatory properties, which helps provide relief from pain and any sort of internal discomfort. Its active compound curcumin may help manage quite a few chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, liver problems. A pinch of haldi is also known to rev up immunity naturally.

Turns out that the concoction of milk, haldi, saffron and some nuts could also help you with a bevy of other problems too.
"The calming night cap

If you have any of these or none of these but would like to relax in your bed with a nice warm cup of calm, follow my recipe," Rujuta wrote in her caption.
To make the soothing concoction you would need a pinch of turmeric, some saffron strands, crushed almonds and sugar as per taste. You can find the full recipe of the warm beverage on her post here.
