FRESH TURMERIC AND CURD CURRY

Delighted to write this post after a long pause inspired by the new look of CAK ! Thanks to the efforts of my dear sons , the blog has come out with an attractive makeover . 

Turmeric is considered auspicious and is used in all festive rituals in India . No Indian kitchen is complete without Turmeric in the spice box . CAK is making a fresh start on this happy Ugadi festival with a Fresh Turmeric recipe. 

 I was dumb struck when I received a bagful of freshly harvested Turmeric / Pasum Manjal grown in my brother’s home garden . What would I do with the enormous quantity of the auspicious rhizomes ? More of them were left on hand even after making Fresh Turmeric Chutney , Fresh Turmeric Gojju.  and many more dishes posted earlier in this blog .

 I came across a Rajastani Turmeric Curry recipe while browsing and decided to experiment using my own spice powders . Fresh Turmeric And Curd Curry did turn out delicious!
