I never seen a spice as polarizing as turmeric. On one side, health bloggers raving about the benefits — excited to discover a new and different spice. On the other side, South Asians are bitterly mumbling about the sudden popularity of the spice. Not too long ago, they were ridiculed for food that stained their hands, mocked for the smell of coconut in their hair (but that’s a whole different post for the future) so this trend is like a slap in their face. As a South Asian health blogger I see both sides to it and it leaves me in confusing territory.
Turmeric holds a special place in my heart. It reminds me of Indian dinners that would always leave my nails a little yellow. It brings back memories of sick days when my mom would force me to drink haldi ka doodh (turmeric milk). Turmeric also reminds of Indian weddings as it’s an important ingredient in one of the many ceremonies.
