Kacchi haldi ki sabzi

Haldi ki sabzi is a common dish in Rajasthani household. Tastes awesome and full of nutrition.

Making this sabzi is quite simple, with a little perfect recipe.

Haldi/turmeric is good for bones,Immunity booster .

Made specially during winters as this is the time when Kacchi haldi is available in market.

This recipe is made with Desi ghee to mild the strong aroma of haldi and tastes much better.

While peeling the skin of haldi you have to be careful with not wearing any whites and cover your hands with gloves, unless you are OK with all yellow palm.

I would suggest to serve this sabzi like you serve any side dish or chutney, as one won’t be able to consume haldi sabzi like a curry.

What is Haldi doodh or Golden milk

Haldi or turmeric is considered as the golden spice of India.Haldi has being used in ayurvedic medicine from ages.It contains antioxidant properties.Milk as we all know is best in calcium and when haldi is added this makes it a superdrink in any way.So ,when haldi and milk are combined with some more herbs this is called as Haldi dhoodh or Golden milk

Benefits of Haldi Dhoodh:

Haldi reduces swelling in your body

Helps in healing wounds quickly

Helpful in cold and lung infections

Today I am sharing with you a full proof recipe of haldi milk or golden milk,which my mother in law has been making since ages in this family,and whenever our family is down with cold and cough this golden jewel is served every night after dinner.

After drinking this milk you don’t have to drink water till one hour,so it is suggested that you drink haldi doodh after your dinner and before going to bed,if you follow this regularly you will definitely notice the difference.

Not only when you are suffering from cold n cough you can drink haldi doodh,this can be taken on daily basis also for good health.Haldi doodh also boosts immunity.

Why Jaggery is good for health:

Jaggery/gur

For sweetner here you have to add jaggery not sugar.As jaggery is a best sweetner and healthy option.

Jaggery is also called as desi sugar,in rural areas(here I am talking about Uttar pradesh region)

Jaggery is obtained from boiling sugar-cane

cleanse the body toxins,eases digestion system.Prevents from constipation.

Jaggery is loaded with antioxidants and minerals.If you are working in steel plant industry,so it is highly recommendable to have jaggery aka gur to clear all the toxins in your body,my husband does eat a small piece of jaggery every day as he works in a steel plant.

So it is suggested to have jaggery in Haldi doodh rather than sugar,but if you don’t have jaggery gur then go ahead with sugar.
