Master Indian's Turmeric Curry

Turmeric should be celebrated. Its health benefits are numerous, significant, and clinically-proven. A vertiable health revolution has occurred around turmeric, and hence you can find countless preparations of the classic spice. If you make turmeric a regular part of your diet, we figure you might as well make it as delicious as possible, which is why Master Indian Spice designed the turmeric curry, an adaptation of the traditional Mughal recipe for korma. This dish is best served medium or hot. Our social media chef, Ben also recommends a little extra fresh minced ginger and especially minced garlic. We'll present the standard recipe here as it appears on the package:
