Alamelu is quoted in the above article on October 23, 2012.

“Milwaukee-area cooking instructor and cookbook author Alamelu Vairavan knows that some people shy away from Indian cooking because they think there are too many ingredients. “But once you set up all the spices, it’s really quite easy,” she said.”

“One of Vairavan’s favorite spices is turmeric, which she called Indian gold, citing not only its flavor but also evidence that it helps to ward off Alzheimer’s.”
