Nutmeg or Jaiphal is a very aromatic spice with a delicate, sweet flavour that is often called for in many recipes. It can be grated or ground to be added to meats, cabbage, shellfish as well as gingerbread, cookies, cupcakes, desserts and wines. Adding a little bit of nutmeg while boiling rice makes it taste really different and rich.
Nutmeg is rich in Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Manganese and other minerals. A little bit can be grated and added to your face pack or scrub to make the skin look brighter. Nutmeg is good for digestion and keeps your brain sharper and body healthier by improving blood circulation. Like clove, nutmeg is also good for the gums, teeth and general oral health as it has antibacterial properties. It is also said to reduce insomnia. So add a pinch of nutmeg powder to your glass of milk for a good night’s sleep!
