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.
Preheat oven to 100 degrees celsius or 212 fahrenheit.
Peel the fresh turmeric with a spoon.
*Wear gloves while doing so.*
Coarsely slice the peeled fresh turmeric to about the same thickness.
Transfer onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
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.
Transfer into a spice grinder and blitz until powder forms.
*You can pass the powder thru' a fine sieve to ensure no large chunks.*
Store in a sterilized jar.
I like to keep them in the freezer for a prolonged period of time.
