I am not going into the health benefits of this post as I dont know much on that , members are free to discuss and hopefully not give medical advice ! Today’s post is about fresh haldi and two more delicious roots – aromatic Amba Mor / White Turmeric and Ginger/ Adrak. Here they come together and create a delicious preserve.
Every winter we make 2-3 large jars of Fresh Turmeric Preserve which stays forever in the fridge and adds great flavors to soups , salads , mixed into cooked veggies and most often just eaten like an achar – or like have , on a mathari !
This year thanks to Nandita I have lots of Amba Mor/White Turmeric which I didnt want drying out on me – and thats how this mixed root preserve came to be.The same recipe applies to any combination permutation of these ingredients . Here is what I did – all measures are flexible.
1 Cup Grated Peeled Fresh Turmeric/ Haldi.
3/4th Cup Grated Peeled Amba Mor/White Turmeric.
1/2 Cup Grated Peeled Fresh Ginger/Adrak.
2-3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice.
1 Teaspoon Freshly Pounded Black Pepper.
Grate using the largest hole , or cut to size.Mix all ingredients and it’s ready to eat ! Store in an airtight jar store in the fridge. It will retain a bite and all the brilliant flavors for over a year when you can make a fresh batch. Black pepper isnt necessary , I add it because when you ingest turmeric with black pepper, you are increasing the amount of the curcumin you can absorb and your body can use – ooops I gave some food gyaan too !
Not all will have access to Amba Mor – no problem , use the same recipe for Fresh Turmeric with or without adding Ginger .
