(0 customer reviews)



Product description

Indian turmeric from the Alleppey region is reputed for its ability to colour curries, pickles, rice dishes, mustards, drinks & sweet dishes with a dark yellow-ochre. It has a distinctive fragrant and an earthy mildly bitter taste. Even though there are two types most commonly used; Alleppey and Madras, Alleppey turmeric is the best variety to use in cooking when the true flavour of fresh turmeric is desired. It has been used in Asia, first as a dyestuff and later as part of Ayurvedic medicine due to its high levels of curcumin. for more information see below
