Take 2 cup water in a vessel and place it on flame for heating. Add 1/2 tsp salt and some turmeric powder into it. When water starts boiling, add aloe vera chunks into it and allow it to simmer for another 6 to 7 minutes.
Turn off the flame and take the aloe vera chunks out from water. Wash these chunks twice with water thoroughly (with this bitterness in aloe vera is reduced).
