TURMERIC (Curcuma longa) is a perennial plant of the ginger family. It is a rhizome or an underground stem.
 A kitchen staple in Indian kitchens, it is found in just about any dish that crosses the dining table.
Research suggest that Curcumin, a compound that gives the turmeric it's yellow hue is rich in antioxidants and anti - inflammatory actions.
The Turmeric Spice is used in most curries, Indian or otherwise. It can be used to Stirfry vegetables and tofu, also commonly used in deserts like "kheer and laddus" .
Turmeric is a crusader against diseases like Alzheimers, Cancer, Asthama, Blood Pressure, Blemishes, Depression, Psoriasis and Eczema etc.
It is commonly used in anti aging face packs, and blemish reduction masks, in India.
