Turmeric - the soul of Indian cooking

Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is a rhizome of the ginger family. Originally from Indonesia and China, it has been cultivated in India for thousands of years. In fact, it is often referred to as "Indian Saffron' because of the strong saffron colour it imparts to food.

The best Indian turmeric is grown in the fertile 'Siruvani' river basin of Thondamuthur in Erode and Salem districts of Tamil Nadu and in various parts of Northeast India, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

The most versatile of all spices, Turmeric is widely used throughout Asia to colour and flavour food and is respected for its versatility. It has antiseptic properties and is used as an additive in cosmetics and medicines. In India, traditionally, women apply it on their faces and other parts of the body to stall unwanted hair growth and improve the complexion. And, of course it is used in all Hindu ceremonies as a mark of purity and auspiciousness.
