Turmeric (39)

    Turmeric can be used fresh as a root, much like ginger, or more commonly in its dried, powdered form. A staple in curries and rice dishes, turmeric is finding its way into more and more recipes, in part thanks to its status as having anti-inflammatory and health benefits.

    Fresh turmeric root, grated ginger and almond milk create a soothing golden milk that's better for you than a cup of hot chocolate! It's not as spicy as the traditional turmeric milk known as Haldi Ka Doodh but it's still a great way to introduce more turmeric into your diet. Any milk or milk alternative will do here. Agave nectar can be used in place of honey for a vegan drink.

    A traditional Lebanese dessert. This recipe omits the traditional addition of rose water and orange blossom essense, but it doesn't take away any of the deliciousness.

    A traditional South African recipe, which calls for rice to be cooked with turmeric, sugar, cinnamon, raisins and butter. It's easy and goes well with highly flavoured meats, such as venison.

    On a recent trip to Bali, my Balinese stepmother, Putu, let me help her prepare chicken - and I furiously committed her 'non-recipe' to memory to bring home. She has a big mortar and pestle for this kind of thing; I don't, so I end up using both sides of my meat mallet; you just want to get the ingredients well combined and at least somewhat reduced in mass. And since they're baked, not deep-fried, they're a (relatively) healthy pile of wings! I particularly like them with roasted sweet potatoes.
