You can also use and add fresh turmeric and ginger to this recipe. I opted for powder as it’s more convenient for me and I just ran out of fresh ginger as I always use it in flavoring my homemade kombucha.

If using fresh ingredients you need to boil them together with the water in the pot then strain after boiling and add milk (optional), a pinch of pepper, cinnamon, and maple syrup as a sweetener.

BENEFITS OF TURMERIC

Also known as the Golden tea, turmeric offers a lot of good benefits especially if you are active in sports or a runner. But first what is Turmeric,

It is from the flowering plant cucurma which also belongs to the family of ginger, it is also one of the many famous spices in Indian culinary and gives curry a yellow color and it is also referred to as ayurvedic.

 If you want to add flavor in cooking your favorite plain white rice try adding 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder (for 1 cup of rice) after the final wash and enjoy the turmeric rice.
