How to Make Turmeric Powder

  • Pounding turmeric requires a bit of a lengthy procedure, but those who want the authentic don't mind it.
  • Buy thick firm, healthy ones.
  • Wash in plenty of water
  • Drain water in a large colander
  • Then, dry in strong sun.
  • See that they are absolutely dry and brittle, before you pound.
  • If grinding in a machine, then pound to a semi-crushed state by hand, to avoid the blades of the dry grinder from causing injury.
