Golden Milk/Haldi wala doodh
Turmeric is most well-known for its use in curry dishes, but it’s earning a name for itself as a potent medicinal food. While some people find it soothing, and perfect before bed, others enjoy it first thing in the morning and even drink it in place of coffee or tea.
If you haven’t tried golden milk yet, you’re missing out! When ever I make this, I remember my Graddmom. She used to make it the best. She always used to give us this regularly during winters. It’s a creamy hot milk drink that’s filled to the brim with nutrients. To sweeten, you can go any number of ways. I typically go for jaggery, honey or dates.
