    Fresh turmeric dosai

    Benefits of using turmeric

    Turmeric is a natural colourant.

    It has anti inflammatory properties and hence used since olden days as an applicant on inflamed areas

    Turmeric when consumed regularly will increase the antioxidants in our body

    Widely used in many drugs

    Cosmetically this helps to shed facial hair when applied as a paste regularly.

    TURMERIC DOSAI OR MANJAL DOSAI

    You must be already be knowing about the culinary uses of turmeric . Turmeric latte seems to be in the lime light for some time now. Here I have used fresh turmeric in the dosai batter. Read about this dosai in a book by Chandra Padmanabhan and was very surprised to see that fresh turmeric has these uses. She says this is prepared by the tulu speaking people during diwali.Taste and flavour of fresh turmeric is an acquired taste though. It has a certain earthy feel to it. We loved it and am sure you will too
