turmeric latte

This golden milk or haldi wala doodh as we call it in India has been had since centuries. I don’t think we Indians can think of cooking without turmeric powder. It is used in our dishes, curries, dry preparations and even in this golden turmeric milk. Turmeric has great antioxidant properties and is an immunity booster. Mum would make us have this turmeric latte or turmeric milk religiously through winter especially if we had the sniffles.

I prefer to use organic haldi which is more orangish yellow in colour when I make this. Look for organic turmeric powder to up the benefits of this haldi doodh.

This is so easy to make. I have had it occasionally during the the months of season change. Could you please tell me if it’s ok for a 3.5 year old to consume this daily?

Rachna -

Thanks Sonia. It should be okay but still confirm once with your pediatrician.

Sonia Chatterjee -

Sure. Will do that. Thanks.

Oh yes, haldi milk is one of the usual gharelu nuskhaas for cold!
My chachi taught me to prepare a homemade immune-booster tonic using raw haldi, ginger, amla and honey. I was planning to share its recipe, but my phone (with all the recipe pics) got stolen, and then I didn’t get a chance to make it again after that.

Aha! People have been going ga-ga over this in the west! Unfortunately for me, I can’t have milk with anything mixed in it. Not even chocolate. It has to be plain, hot milk without any sugar or anything.
