Turmeric, commonly known as “Haldi” in India, is a spice derived from the roots of the curcuma longa plant. This Haldi powder is deep orange-yellow in color and has a distinctly earthy, slightly bitter and slightly peppery taste and a mustardy smell due to the presence of a substance called curcumin.
This spice has formed a part of Indian culture and tradition since times immemorial and it’s considered as an herbal remedy due to its anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties. It is often used in the rituals particularly the “haldi” ceremony of Indian weddings where a paste of turmeric is applied to the bride and groom’s body as part of marriage preparations.
Being a natural, it is used to beautify the skin and making it flawless. Being the most widely used spice, it is often referred to as the “INDIAN SAFFRON”
