Turmeric powder is used extensively in South Asian cuisine. It is one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes.
Turmeric is mostly used in savoury dishes but is used in some sweet dishes.
In recipes outside South Asia, turmeric is sometimes used as an agent to impart a rich, custard-like yellow colour. It is used in canned beverages, baked products, dairy products, ice cream, yogurt, yellow cakes, orange juice, biscuits, cereals, sauces, gelatins etc. It is a significant ingredient in most commercial curry powders.
Vanilla flavouring in food may be achieved by adding vanilla extract or by cooking vanilla pods in the liquid preparation. A stronger aroma may be attained if the pods are split in two, exposing more of a pod’s surface area to the liquid. In this case, the pods’ seeds are mixed into the preparation. Natural vanilla gives a brown or yellow colour to preparations, depending on the concentration. Good-quality vanilla has a strong aromatic flavour.
