Turmeric Rice – Adding Nutritional Value to your Rice

Today, I will be sharing to you how I usually pump up my rice with the powerful nutrients of turmeric. Remember, I showed you before how to make the turmeric powder? You may find the link here. I use this powder to my cooking recipes, and of those is the turmeric rice. I was very hesitant to share recipes in this blog, because as a Kapampangan, I am not used to really measuring my ingredients. Everything is measured depending on my taste buds at that time. But for today, I will give you tentative measurements, but of course, it’s always up to you if you want to add or lessen any of the ingredients (like what I always do with the recipes I see online).



Here is what you need:

5 cups of rice (steamed)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1/2 garlic bulb

1/4 tsp iodized salt

1 pinch of pepper

cooking oil

  1. Fry the garlic until golden brown.
  2. Put turmeric powder, then immediately put the rice as soon as the cooking oil turns yellow orange.
  3. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Stir until all grains get even color of yellow.
  5. Serve.


You may also simply place your turmeric powder when you steam your rice. That’s a lot easier, especially if you don’t have much time to prepare.

Best served with Asian dishes. We had Bokchoy/Pechay with Oyster Sauce together with our turmeric rice. The kids loved the turmeric rice, because of its attractive yellow color. That’s a sure way of helping them eat nutritious and delicious meal. 🙂 #chimes
