Turmeric milk is a traditional cure for cold, cough and throat problems. Take half a cup of milk in a pan, add a half teaspoon of turmeric powder, a half teaspoon of ghee (clarified butter) and a pinch of salt. Bring to boil, then let it cool slightly and drink it while still warm. Take daily until cured.
Origin: Native to south Asia, by 800 AD turmeric had spread across much of Asia, including China, and across Africa.
