Galangal

Did You Know ?

"Galangal is the khaa in Tom Khaa. Also used in Tom Yum and curry pastes. A close relation of root ginger, galangal is a popular flavouring ingredient in south east Asian recipes. It has a similar knobbly appearance and flavour to fresh ginger although it is more pungent and spicier. Galangal is frequently used in combination with garlic, ginger, chili's, lemon or tamarind to "de-fish" foods. If you don't have galangal root you can use ginger. But remember. It's not the same but similar."
