Turmeric is a member of the ginger family. It adds a mildly gingery flavor to the dish but with less sweetness and more depth and earthiness. Essential to curry blends. Use sparingly, as too much of it can turn the dish bitter. Turmeric needs heat to come alive, bloom it in oil before sautéeing onions and garlic. Also great with egg dishes!
It is used in many dishes in India and around the world for its healthful qualities.
