Turmeric Sticks (Pasupu kommulu) are raw haldi sticks and we can make pure haldi powder or paste as per requirement. We see it in our curries and daals, infusing the vibrant yellow tinge to the dullest dish. Turmeric is every Indian household's go-to fix for a variety of health problems and works as antioxidant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory. While most of us are well aware of its powdered form and use it extensively in daily cooking, not many know that the root itself, in its most crude form, is packed with several benefits like boosting digestion, providing relief from tummy problems. It has anti-inflammatory properties, good for skin and excellent antiseptic. It also works as blood purified and maintains blood sugar problems.
