Like ginger, turmeric is a tuber that varies in colour from deep orange to reddish brown, but when dried and ground into a powder it is always bright yellow. It is used in small quantities to add a fresh, penetrating flavour and aroma to vegetables, soups and chutneys, or to colour rice. Ground turmeric holds its colouring properties for a long time but quickly loses its aroma. It should be cooked carefully as it burns easily.
Use: turmeric is used in spice mixtures (masalas, curries), it is used in Indian and Chinese cuisine and for the preparation of vegetables, legumes and meat dishes.
