Turmeric is known as the "Golden Spice" and is often used instead of saffron thanks to its deep, rich, golden yellow colour and its unique flavour. Turmeric holds a special place in Hinduism and is a key element in cultural traditions such as Mangala Sutra. Turmeric's unique and vibrant flavour makes it perfect for chicken, fish, and vegetables.
An essential ingredient in curry sauces, it also goes well with rice, mustard pickles, and chutneys. For a colourful twist add to scrambled eggs, frittatas or even salad dressings.
