How To Make Turmeric Milk

In its simplest form, haldi doodh literally only needs 2 ingredients: turmeric and milk. 

All you need to do is heat a cup of milk on the stove, and add 2 tablespoons of turmeric powder to it. Mix it thoroughly, and there you have it: the best and quickest home remedy for a throat ache, cold or flu.
