Working with Turmeric

Working with Turmeric Turmeric is one of Indonesian cuisine’s major ingredients, both in its fresh root and powdered forms. It can be difficult to find fresh turmeric in Western countries so I’ve substituted the powder form in these recipes. Similar to working with coconut milk and rice, when using turmeric in rice, you must mix the rice gently to spread the color and flavor of the turmeric evenly before and after the rice has cooked.
