Turmeric : From garden to kitchen

Posted in Garden stroll by ytelotus on February 8, 2014

Some years ago, I happened to buy a few turmeric plants from a vendor by the road-side in Bangalore.  With some festival just around the corner, there were plenty of vendors selling these turmeric leaves/plants.  I planted them in our kitchen-garden, hoping to reap some turmeric leaves for kitchen use.  Turmeric leaves are used for preparing a sweet dish called patholi by the konkani community.  Little did I care to think of any other use of these plants.
