Turmeric milk is popularly called haldi milk in India and it has many health benefits. Turmeric milk is also called haldi doodh as  turmeric is called haldi and milk is called doodh in Hindi. This milk is a very famous home remedy for many minor illnesses and it is also very easy to make it at home. The best health benefits of haldi milk are: 1.Turmeric Milk For Cough: Haldi milk is the best medicine for cough. When you have a discomfort in your throat due to cough or cold,  just try this turmeric milk. The pepper and turmeric together helps in faster healing. Pepper has anti microbial properties and it has been used for centuries in India to treat cough. 2. Turmeric Milk For Cold: Haldi milk is so very comforting to drink when we have a cold. Actually having a cup of this warm turmeric milk in the night before going to bed helps us get good uninterrupted sleep when we have a cold. Both turmeric and pepper helps in faster healing and this haldi milk can be used even for treating toddlers when they have cold. 3. Turmeric Milk For Weight loss: Haldi milk is the best detox drink. Drinking a cup of turmeric milk is the best and easy way to detox our body. It aids in natural weight loss as it keeps our digestion and assimilation in peak order. 4. Turmeric Milk For Skin:  Turmeric in the milk greatly helps in faster healing of skin diseases like acne when you drink it regularly. You can also apply turmeric externally along with drinking turmeric milk for faster healing. 5. Turmeric Milk For Diabetics: Diabetic patients will greatly benefit from turmeric milk as turmeric improves blood sugar levels, but skip the sugar in the recipe. When you consume it regularly, it may lower blood sugar levels significantly. 6. Turmeric Milk For Fever: Turmeric milk can be used for treating any kind of fever. It heals the body faster from viral and bacterial infections and help patients get back to their normal self very quickly. 7. Turmeric Milk For Sore Throat: I love to drink haldi milk whenever I have sore throat, it really helps. I used to suffer from throat infections whenever I eat watermelon (because of the high amount of pesticides in the fruit) and drinking haldi milk was my first go to remedy for it. 8. Turmeric Milk For Face: Haldi milk can be applied to face externally too. It prevents acne and heals blemishes very quickly. But make a thick paste and skip the pepper powder and sugar. 9. Turmeric Milk For Cancer Prevention: Regular consumption of haldi milk prevents cancer. Curcumin in the turmeric roots is the main reason for it, as it prevents cancer cells from forming. 10. Turmeric Milk For Digestion: Since this milk is made with pepper powder, it also aids in digestion and above all it is so very comforting to drink this milk. To make this turmeric milk recipe, milk is warmed with sugar and a pinch of turmeric powder. We always use organic, grass fed whole milk from our farm, so I used that. You can use any type of milk you prefer. We always grind our own turmeric powder, but if you could get organic turmeric powder, please use that. Once the milk is warmed, remove and add fresh pepper powder. This milk tastes really good, but don't add too much of turmeric powder, just a pinch will do, else the milk will have a strong raw flavor of turmeric.

 


 METHOD:
1. Heat a cup of milk with a pinch of turmeric powder and required amount of sugar.


2. Once the milk is warmed, remove from fire and add fresh pepper powder. Your comforting turmeric milk is ready.


NOTES:
  • Don't add too much of turmeric powder.
  • This milk can be given to toddlers to.
  • This haldi milk can be sweetened with honey which is even more better.
  • Prepare this haldi milk fresh. If you leave it in the refrigerator, it will not taste good.

  9. how can we make this milk from gundu manjil?
    how to tell we have a clean, safe one to use?

    after some pujas i'm given one as a gift. but i'm not sure if they're hygienic to use and are processed in which they're safe for eating purposes.

    these days most of the manjil podis are adulterated. they have unusual yellow colors as if some synthetic colors enhancers are added to it.

    1. If you think the manjal is unhygienic, wash it in water, pound to break into small pieces, sun dry and then powder. Add the powder while boiling milk...
