Termic Powder
This deep yellow powder is made by grinding dry turmeric rhizomes. Available in almost all the valleys of southern Districts, turmeric has been traditionally used for coloring and flavoring food. However, its powerful anti-inflammatory agent that has long been used in Chinese and Indian medicinal systems was well known to Bhutanese people in the recent years. As such the use of turmeric for medicinal value is gaining popularity. It is consumed directly with warm water or added to drinking milk.
