What is Lakadong Turmeric?

Lakadong turmeric originates from the Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya, India, and it's often hailed as the world's best turmeric. What sets it apart is its sky-high curcumin levels, the very compound that gives turmeric its vibrant yellow hue and various health benefits.

Lakadong Turmeric powder is a beautiful bright golden-yellow color that’s easily substituted for other turmeric varieties when cooking. 

Our organic Lakadong turmeric is of premium quality, with more than 8% naturally occurring curcumin in it. 

  • This product has been lab tested for heavy metals, and it complies with U.S. federal and state laws.
  • 100% Pure and USDA Certified Organic.
  • Non-GMO, No Additives, No Preservatives, No Fillers. Non-Irradiated.
  • To get maximum benefits, cook it in Pure Indian Foods Ghee.

No anti-caking agents added. Lumps may form, which is natural and normal.

Ideas for using this naturally high-curcumin turmeric:

  • Add to cooking grains, legumes, soups and stews
  • Add lakadong turmeric to a lassi or milk shake, or to warm milk or non-dairy milk along with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, a dash of black pepper and optional sweetener of choice
  • Color natural frostings (cream cheese and honey, for example) with just a pinch of Lakadong Turmeric
  • Blend with ginger, cumin, coriander and hing for a flavorful spice that’s delicious with vegetables, grains and meats
  • Make Lakadong Turmeric tea by simmering 2 cups water with ¼ teaspoon Lakadong Turmeric for 10 minutes; strain and add lemon or natural sweetener of choice. If desired, add cinnamon, ginger, cream, milk, or coconut milk. For a quick and healthy “pick-me-up”, mix ½ teaspoon honey with ¼ teaspoon Lakadong Turmeric in a cup of warm water.
  • Stir-fry shrimp or scallops in a spicy blend of Lakadong Turmeric, cayenne, salt, minced garlic and scallions
  • Add a pinch of lakadong turmeric powder to cream sauce for vegetables or pasta
  • Add to a favorite vinaigrette, mayonnaise or a creamy salad dressing
  • Add a pinch of this high-curcumin turmeric to banana, rice or coconut pudding
  • Mix with dried or fresh parsley; sprinkle over poached eggs, or add to scrambled eggs or frittatas
  • Add lakadong turmeric powder to meatloaf or meatballs
  • Add this high-curcumin tumeric to barbeque sauce for basting meats like chicken, steak and chops
  • Add a little to a homemade granola recipe along with golden Hunza raisins for a sunshiny treat
  • Add a healthy pinch of lakadong turmeric to homemade puris, chapattis and tortillas

The farmers who grow this special turmeric take great care while growing and cultivating, using only sustainable practices and never applying harsh chemicals. Lakadong Turmeric’s high potency means you may need a bit less - a little can go a long way.

Hi! I'm Sandeep.

I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.

My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.

We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
