Turmeric or Haldi, the one spice that gives Indian curries its signature Golden - yellow color.

One of the most common spices of Indian sub-continent, Haldi is used for almost 97% of all Indian savory dishes. It is indigenous to India & grown all over the country.

Interestingly, some people argue that ‘Haldi is not a spice - There is no flavor, no taste, no aroma’. In fact, the Western world hardly ever uses this spice, except for as a colorant in Mustard sauce.

India has a strong bonding with Turmeric which can be seen in the multiple ways it is tied to our culture. There is always a ‘Haldi ceremony’ before Hindu weddings and we greet each other with Haldi-kumkum on festivals. 
Singers drink turmeric milk/ water to clear throats before a show as an ancient voice remedy.
The older generations still use Turmeric to instantly stop bleeding from wounds & use turmeric infusions for treating chest infections. And of course, Turmeric creams & lotions are widely popular due to the antiseptic property of this colorful spice.
