Sauté with “Turmeric”
Turmeric is like salt and pepper; add it for a little flavor. Adding too much is not the best way, it’s better to dash a little at a time. When cooking with Turmeric you must first realize it is a powder and powders pull out moisture, so when adding Turmeric to a dish you must look at the moisture content. If there is no moisture it will clump up, remain dry and will not evenly distribute in the dish. When you sauté a particular dish you must add olive oil, water or wine to break down moisture and distribute evenly. You can also use it as a dry topping, such as a sprinkle on salads, meats, fish and eggs. Turmeric will add an earthy warm taste to your dish. Once you get the hang of cooking with Turmeric you will always use it in every dish.
Be careful with Turmeric, it stains everything, including your fingers. White clothing will get ruined in a flash, as well as other light colors. It will all have a nice color of yellow. When cooking any dish, water, wine, (white wine is a safer choice) or stock (chicken or vegetable) is very important. The liquid helps carry all spices and flavors throughout the pan. It also helps in keeping the food from sticking to the pan, and keeps it moist, so that it does not dry out and burn. It also helps in mixing all ingredients in the pan. When sautéing any dish, as you cook add just a ½ shot or less at a time, then mix.
Depending on how hot your flame is, fluid of any kind will evaporate. If you use stock, make sure it is not salted, because as the stock evaporates it leaves the flavor behind and will overwhelm the dish with salt. As wine evaporates, the alcohol will evaporate also and the flavor of the win will be left behind. Keep in mind when you cook or sauté a dish that liquids are a great thing to keep an eye on, using them will help you create a delicious end result, when used correctly.
