Haldi Ki Sabzi – Winter Special.

Have you ever heard about Haldi Ki Sabzi or ever eaten it? I was also not aware of it until my Mother-in-law made it during this Winter and I was very curious to know as to how it tastes and how she makes it. This time I learned it from her and thought of posting a recipe of the same.

Haldi known as Turmeric has amazing health benefits which we all are aware of. Kacchi Haldi is available in the market during Winter season as eating it brings warmth inside the body and gives benefits during Winter. It’s a brilliant way of eating Haldi in a form of sabzi as it tastes decent if not great. It does have a pungent taste to it but since it has so many great properties why not eat it with roti. Honestly, it doesn’t taste that bad. {Hehe}

Haldi sabzi is easy to make and requires basic ingredients in your kitchen. It does take a bit of time to cook and becomes tender and soft. Slightly pungent in taste but considering the health benefits, it’s a great recipe.

Kacchi haldi is readily available in the local vegetable market. I have posted the picture of it so that anyone can spot it and make this recipe. It certainly does look like ginger but hey, you gotta be careful and once you open it up you will see the turmeric magic.

Let’s get started with the recipe.

Once made you can eat Haldi sabzi for 3-4 days. Store it in a jar or bowl. You can keep it at room temperature or in the fridge. Just warm it a bit on gas or microwave before eating. Always eat Haldi ki sabzi in proportion as it is warm in tendency. Eat 1 teaspoon of it and you are good.
