Turmeric has a special place in Indian tradition. As described in Indian sculptures, everybody must consume at least one or two tea-spoons of turmeric everyday. There are many remedies in which turmeric is used. In this article, lets see how Indian people use turmeric for curing cold and cough.
One of the most traditional medicine for cold is "haladi doodh" i.e. ''turmeric milk". "Haladi" means turmeric and doodh means milk. Turmeric milk is the most popular, well-known remedy used in India for cold and cough. 

  • Take one glass of milk.
  • Boil it.
  • Then put 1 or 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder in it.
  • Put some sugar, if you want. (optional: only to add taste)
