A rhizome similar to ginger, galangal has a less powerful, sweeter aroma in comparison. Its flavour is an intriguing mix of ginger, saffron and cardamom, with a more spicy-sweet taste. Particularly associated with Thai food, particularly in Thai soups, such as tom yum kung and tom kha kai as well as curry pastes. Also used throughout other South East Asia countries.
There are two varieties of galangal, greater and lesser. We offer the greater variety which is the milder of the two.
If substituting for fresh, use half as much. Soften pieces in water before use, or use ground.
