My consumption of turmeric is mainly through the Indian food that I cook and eat. I also love to mix half a teaspoon of turmeric powder into my milk at night. There is nothing fancy about this drink, but the rejuvenating powers of turmeric work their miracle to make me energised.
Today I would also like to share with you a little tit bit about one of my favourite products that has turmeric in it. I have sensitive skin and use ubtans and home made packs on a daily basis. But when I'm filming/shooting or have events to attend, it means that I need deep cleansing to remove my makeup. After trying face washes from across the spectrum of products available in the market, right from drug store to premium brands, I came acrossHimalaya Herbalspurifying neem face wash, recommended by上e of my favourite make up artists.
Whenever I use makeup, I useHimalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Washafter using M.A.C cleanse off oil. The active components in this face wash are turmeric and neem and this is suitable for all skin types. Priced at rupees 150 for a 150 ml pack, this does not burn a big hole in my pocket too.Himalaya Herbals是印度的知名和众所周知的健康品牌，也是如此竞争！该品牌现已向该范围添加了另外两种变体，净化Neem磨砂和净化的雷姆包。我确实也尝试了净化的雷姆包。皮肤上有一种温和的刺痛感，并且在洗完后，我的皮肤感到清洁，更清爽，更亮。我的右侧脸颊上的一个孤零零的疙瘩也缩小了大小。在卢比130的价格为100 G包，富勒的地球，姜黄和雷姆是这包中的有源组件。但是，我确实希望包装没有羟基苯甲酸盐，就像脸部洗涤一样。但是，当你的皮肤爆发时，包装很棒，你想让粉刺晾干。跟随喜马拉雅草药Facebook page和Twitter handlefor more details.
According to Ayurveda, milk is best had at bed time (I keep a gap of 2 hours after dinner). There are numerous health benefits to having turmeric milk at bed time-but the immediate effects are good digestion, a sense of well being and a good night's rest. And I'm sure you agree with me that a good night's rest is probably one of the most important assets in life and this drink is one of the secrets to enjoying it.
P.S- I know this has been a long gap and many of you have been waiting for new recipes and posts. I have been cooking during this time and a lot of exciting recipes are in the pipeline. Hard disk crashes, software migration and other life events have come in the way of making regular posts and I apologise for not being regular, as much as I would like to. I'm in the process of getting them sorted so I can be back with gusto! All the posts here until now, have been shot with my SLR cameras butthis entire posthas been shot with my iphone 6s plus and written from a hospital room where my husband is recuperating with a slipped disc. Quite impressed with the pictures taken from a mobile phone. What do you think?

Turmeric Milk-The Golden Milk Recipe
250 ml ( 1 cup) milk

2 tsp raw sugar (optional)
In a saucepan, heat the milk alongwith the turmeric powder and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the optional spices and sweetener.
