3. Strain the milk over a fine-mesh sieve & discard the solids.
4. Stir a teaspoon of Ghee in the prepared milk & voila, your perfect cup of Haldi Doodh is ready.

~ Why So Potent ~
Black Pepper & Ghee: The Piperine in Black Pepper helps absorb Curcumin in Turmeric, and so does Ghee. Curcumin is fat soluble & adding a healthy source of fat aides with the absorption and bio-availability.
Nutmeg acts as a natural sleep-aid, while Ginger as a digestive-aid.
Sip hot & relax!
