GALANGAL

GalangalBotanical Name: Alpinia galanga
Description

Galangal is a fantastic member of the ginger family. The plant has striking orchid-like blooms and is often found in subtropical and tropical gardens. The knobby root has a delicious exotic taste with a touch of pepper and ginger. Best known as Thai Ginger, Galangal is similar to ginger in appearance, but not in flavor or texture. There are two primary types, Greater and Lesser. Indian and Thai Curries make primary use of Galangal and it is a prime ingredient of the popular Bitters used in mixed drinks. Use ground Galangal with other spices such as Cumin, Coriander, and Thai chillies to season almost any food including soups, sauces, meats and fish, legumes, and dry seasoning blends. Shoots, flower buds & flowers can be eaten cooked, shoots are quite hot when raw.
