Haldi Doodh means turmeric milk in Hindi. Like any Indian recipe, it is a blend of different spices like cardamom, ginger, cloves, but the main component is turmeric.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
