How To Make Turmeric Powder

Updated: Sep 19, 2021

I am not sure if this should be called a recipe. I have some leftover fresh turmeric from my previous recipe: Eggs Benedict Don Fit For A Queen. So, I thought why not turn them into powder. Turmeric is largely used in Indian and South East Asian cuisines; from stews to marinades to even beverages. It has that pungent earthy bitter aromatic with a peppery spicy taste.



  • Fresh Turmeric



  • Oven

  • Spice Grinder



  1. Preheat oven to 100 degrees celsius or 212 fahrenheit.

  2. Peel the fresh turmeric with a spoon.

  3. *Wear gloves while doing so.*

  4. Coarsely slice the peeled fresh turmeric to about the same thickness.

  5. Transfer onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  6. Wack into the oven and bake for 1.5 to 2 hrs or until the turmeric has dried completely. They should be crispy as well.

  7. Transfer into a spice grinder and blitz until powder forms.

  8. *You can pass the powder thru' a fine sieve to ensure no large chunks.*

  9. Store in a sterilized jar.

  10. I like to keep them in the freezer for a prolonged period of time.

From fresh...

To dry...
