The Abandoned Gold Beneath The Soil

Fresh from the garden, best tak? hehe

I grow a tumeric plant in a pot sharing with kesum plants. I wanted to use the tumeric leaves in my cooking but i tak sempat. And it suddenly dried up and turned into brown color @_@. 

I ignored this dried up tumeric plant for about a month. And yesterday i cleaned up the pot because i wanna grow ginger. Out of my expectation, there are tumeric roots grow beneath the soil! 

The plant look small for me but the roots do develop well. Good job! Frankly, i do nothing for this tumeric plant except watering. 

 
Tadaa...this is the yellow gold that i found beneath the soil

 
This the pot that i used to grow tumeric....Notice the dried tumeric leaves?

 
Tadaaa.....The cleaned nice color harvest

The problem is how should i use it in my cooking? i have never use it in my cooking. Beside masak lemak and fry fish, suggest me a recipe please?

  1. Slice and pickle in honey to eat or use in cooking. Or you can slice and dry it well to keep for later use.

  6. Hi Olive,

    The pot you used to grow the tumeric is quite small but the roots you get is quite bountiful! So far Mak Aji belum cukup berjaya dengan kunyit, rasanya overwatering, kut - siram yang lain, siram juga kunyit.
