    New turmeric is cured for acquiring dry turmeric. The fingers are

    divided from mother rhizomes. Mother rhizomes are generally kept as

    seed material. Curing includes bubbling of new rhizomes in water and drying

    in the sun.

    In the conventional technique for curing, the cleaned rhizomes are bubbled in

    water sufficiently just to drench them. Bubbling is ceased when foam comes

    out and white exhaust seem giving out a commonplace smell. The bubbling ought to

    keep going for 45-60 minutes when the rhizomes turn delicate. The stage at which

    bubbling is ceased generally impacts the shading and smell of the last

    item. Over cooking crown jewels the shading of the last item while undercooking

    renders the dried item weak.

    In the enhanced experimental strategy for curing, the cleaned fingers

    (pretty nearly 50 kg) are taken in a punctured trough of 0.9 m x 0.5 m x

    0.4 m size made of GI or MS sheet with broadened parallel handle. The

    punctured trough containing the fingers is then drenched in a dish; 100

    liters of water is poured into the trough in order to inundate the turmeric

    fingers. The entire mass is bubbled till the fingers get to be delicate. The cooked

    fingers are taken out of the skillet by lifting the trough and depleting the water

    into the skillet. The water utilized for bubbling turmeric rhizomes can be utilized for

    curing crisp specimens. The preparing of turmeric is to be carried out 2 or 3 days

    in the wake of collecting. In the event that there is defer in preparing, the rhizomes ought to be

    put away under shade or secured with sawdust or coir dust.
