we have been drinking turmeric milk since our growing up years. this drink is known to build immunity and fight against illness, cold or whenever you need to boost your immunity. turmeric is well known in ayurveda for its health benefits. it is believed that drinking turmeric milk before going to sleep keeps all sickness at bay.

with so many health benefits of turmeric, you will be thinking how to include it in your diet. in indian cooking, we often add turmeric powder to many curries and dry veggie preparation. you can also check this fresh turmeric pickle recipe made with raw fresh turmeric (kachche haldi).

i am sharing here the recipe for turmeric milk which i have been making for many years now. i just add turmeric powder in hot milk, stir and serve. we do not have it sweet, as we are used to having it without the addition of any sweetener. but if you like the milk to be sweet, then add some sugar. though adding sugar is entirely optional. some people also make turmeric milk with fresh turmeric roots. i always use turmeric powder. here i have used organic turmeric powder for this recipe.
