You can use it in preparing sweet and salty dishes. You can add it to risotto, fruit salads, salad dressings, vegetable dishes, sauces, couscous, potatoes, pancakes, cookies … Usually only 1/2 – 1 curcuma tablespoon is enough. Do not overdo it, because the meal will have an excessively intense odor. Whenever possible, add it in the food at the end because you will preserve its medicinal properties to the maximum.
If you do not like the taste of curcuma at all, you can also take it in the form of capsules. Buy empty capsules in the pharmacy and fill them with powder and drink 2-3 capsules daily with a meal. If you are a vegetarian, look for gelatin capsules. A very practical way of taking this healthy plant.
The curcuma powder is good to keep in dark glass bottles in a dark, dry place (not in the refrigerator), because loses its color and sharpness by exposure to direct light.
