Deep-Fried Chicken Wings with Turmeric

What is turmeric good for?

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is an annual herbaceous plant in the family Zingiberaceae (ginger family), native to tropical South America and southern India, which is also commonly used as a spice. It was so popular that it made its way into many cultures, including Indian, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and European.

It has been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of health conditions. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can boost your immune system. Turmeric also contains compounds that have antioxidant properties that may protect against some types of cancer.
