Step 1: A turmeric paste
- 1/4 cup of turmeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
- 1/2 cup of filtered water
Place all ingredients in a small bowl for cooking and stir well. Fire should be with medium strength and thereby you need to stir constantly until the mixture become thick. It wont take long, so do not depart from the stove. Allow the mixture to cool, and then you can keep it in a small jar in the refrigerator.
Step 2: Gold milk

Combine all ingredients except the honey in a pot for cooking. Place the pot on the fire with medium intensity. While you heat the mixture you stir constantly and let it boil. Add honey to the end for taste.
