Turmeric Latte (Haldi wala doodh)

The last hours of the year are full of melancholy memories and thoughts about the people who are not with me today.

Again a year has come to end and folks are doing celebrations by cutting the cake and having drinks with friends. I would like to wish you all a very π‡π€πππ˜ 𝐍𝐄𝐖 π˜π„π€π‘ and thank you for support. May your life be full of happiness and good health, and yeah same wishes for your loved ones too.

Honestly this year, really was not so good for us. There were two unpleasant events in our family. First, my baba died and then my mother-in-law lost her battle against cancer. It's really difficult to keep moving but sometimes you don't have any other option.

I hope this Lil bit of time left, the clock will punch the twelve and I wish for a magical time to make a change in my life.

My baba was a great home cook and a great mentor too. He was the one who thought me cooking and this is the reason for my love for sweet and spices. In the Indian family used to say start your new year with good thinking and good food will bring good fortune for the whole year.

On this new year eve, I am just sitting next to my window and drinking my turmeric latte. We all are drinking this magical golden drink.

In India, this beautiful latte is known as "Haldi wala doodh" which is our special winter drink and made with fresh turmeric.

Actually, Indian food is incomplete without turmeric. We also make fresh turmeric curry in clarified butter. It's a classical veggie to eat in especially winter.

It's always important to do something special each day for yourself, even if you find yourself in the middle of a crazy time. So, do pampering yourself with good care of your body and mind.

Turmeric has antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. In the Indian kitchen, turmeric is an essential spice to fight with cold and boost immunity. It also gives a calming and soothing effect.

I give a treat to myself a hot cup of golden beauty "Haldi wala doodh" when I am tired from the busy day.

Many of the people even don’t like the smell and I am also one of them. But I make my drink with nutmeg, ginger and Lil bit of dates as a sweetener and yes, of course, black pepper also. Heat up your winter with the warmth of this drink.

I propose a toast for the new year with a new beginning of life to family and most importantly for the person, I loved most who is absent but can't be forgotten.

Wish you all a very happy new year... Stay tuned.
