Turmeric milk with step by step pictures.

Turmeric milk which is also referred to as golden milk is the addition of fresh turmeric roots/rhizome or turmeric powder in milk. This drink is an age-old home remedy/medicine for cold/cough symptoms and indigestion. This drink is rich anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory property. although it is good it also has some side effects causing stomach upset, nausea, dizziness or diarrhea. So when consuming this drink take a break after a week and consume this drink.

As this root was freshly available in the market during winter I bought it mainly to make this drink. If you didn't get fresh root don't worry replace it with turmeric powder. Here I haven't used any sweetener. You can use honey or regular white sugar if you are willing.  Let us see how to make it.
