Turmeric is one of the common spices used in Indian food. We grew up eating food which had turmeric in most meals. Most Dals, curries, veggie sides have Turmeric added to them in small amounts. Some creamy white sauces, Indo- chinese food or snacks were exceptions.
Fresh turmeric is a bit more bitter than powder and can be an acquired flavor. Dried powdered turmeric root (turmeric powder) is more easily available than fresh turmeric root. Powdered turmeric in larger amounts can also add a bitter profile to the dish. The overall flavor might be pronounced for some, ok or undetectable for many.
With the interest in Turmeric recently increasing because of many beneficial properties, I now experiment with Turmeric in other applications other than Indian food as well. Try a few of these to start on your Turmeric adventure. In a Sauce, soup, dals, with cauliflower rice, as Turmeric Lentil Fritters (pic above), in sushi roll, in muffins, cakes, Iced tea and more.
