About Golden Paste

I’ve been experimenting with it lately, and I have to say, the benefits are incredible. Not only does it help with joint pain, but it also seems to do wonders for digestion. Plus, it’s versatile—I’ve used it in everything from smoothies to curries.

I thought I’d share the recipe with you. My recipe makes about 1 cup of golden paste, which should last a while. Trust me, once you start incorporating this into your daily routine, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make golden paste using fresh turmeric and ginger?

If making it with fresh turmeric and ginger, wash and peel them. Make a fine paste of both ingredients, mix it with other ingredients, and cook it with a little water. Once done, mix it with coconut oil, and your turmeric paste is ready.

If prepared with fresh turmeric, the color of the paste will be slightly lighter than the paste prepared with turmeric powder.

Usage Suggestions

Mix a teaspoon of golden paste in hot milk to make Haldi Doodh.

You can add it to soups, stews, milk, yogurt, coffee, smoothies, rice, curries, hummus, pasta sauce, and salad dressings.

Add it to your mocktails and cocktails for a healthy turmeric twist.

    I have made this several times and enjoy it very much. I used a ginger paste,and …since I didn’t have grou d cloves, I used a “pie spice” which has cloves,nutmeg,and cinnamon in it. I still added additional cinnamon.I used the maple syrup and the coconut oil. It is easy to make,and I appreciate that you shared this recipe. Thank you!,( for readers of this post:Give it a try! )
