Raw turmeric pickle step-by-step recipe with photos.
Turmeric needs no introduction. It is an important part of Indian cooking and an essential part of my spice box. Not a day goes by in my kitchen where I have not touched this magic ingredient. The health benefits it carries in numerous. While I use turmeric powder in my day-to-day cooking, raw turmeric roots are also a part of my kitchen, especially in winter.
I have earlier shared the recipe of turmeric latte, which is an excellent winter warmer. Raw turmeric pickle is yet another simple and healthy dish that can be made in minutes and stored in the refrigerator.
To make raw turmeric pickle, I temper mustard and fennel seeds in coconut oil. I then saute cleaned and sliced turmeric roots. I mix in salt and chilli powder to it and saute for a few more minutes. The pickle can be used immediately or can be cooled completely and stored in the refrigerator.
Just take a piece or two of it and mix it with some hot rice. Healthy, healing food.
