Black Turmeric - Kali Haldi
It is mainly used for medicinal purposes and is incorporated into tinctures, teas, and pastes. Often, Kali Haldi is added to honey, sugarcane, or other ingredients to create an infusion.
When combining the rhizomes into beverages, this turmeric should be mixed with stronger flavoured ingredients such as lemon and ginger to balance its bitter nature. Cucumber, kale, and tropical fruits can also be added for a sweeter taste.
This turmeric can be stored for 4 to 6 months in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark place such as the refrigerator.
This turmeric is closely associated with Kali, the Hindu goddess of life and death, power, and a symbol of mother nature.
The variety is known for containing the highest concentration of curcumin of any turmeric species.
Black Turmeric is traditionally made into a paste and applied topically to heal wounds, skin irritations, and snake and insect bites. The paste is believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and is also ingested to soothe an upset stomach and relieve digestive issues. Beyond wound healing, Kali Haldi paste is rubbed on sprains and bruises to temporarily relieve pain or placed on the forehead to reduce the severity of migraine
