Turmeric has been cultivated for thousands of years for its bright yellow color and is responsible for the color of curry powder. It has a mild, earthy flavor and used in many Indian and Asian dishes. Turmeric is finely ground and is the consistency of flour.
Turmeric is used in many Indian dishes, especially vegetarian entrees with potatoes or cauliflower. Add monarch turmeric to rice, soups, sauces and chutney. Tumeric is indispensible when creating unique curry powders.
Typically used in recipe applications or blended with other spices. The color is very vibrant, so only a small amount is needed.
