Americans Are Once Again Obsessed With Something That Indians Have Been Having For Years
The Guardian recently published a story discussing America's obsession with Turmeric Lattes.
BUT here's the thing, "Turmeric Latte" is basically haldi doodh, a remedy Indian parents have been giving their children for years.
And Indian twitter users couldn't help but rub that fact in.
TBF, The Guardian article does reference the fact that America is only just now catching up to India.
After ghee, homemade yoghurt and coconut oil, turmeric is the latest health-food trend to originate from the south Asian pantry, another sign that the Indian subcontinent may be ahead of the hipster curve. Turmeric and milk is a fairly well-entrenched drink in the region's food culture, where it is considered a restorative. Turmeric is part of Ayurvedic medicine – a holistic, all-natural approach to health that has been practised for centuries in India – and a ubiquitous ingredient in curries and rice dishes.
