At a glance, it’s easy to mistake galangal (pronounced guh-LANG-guh) for its rhizome-relative, ginger. But this knobby root’s sharp, pine-like aroma and citrusy, earthy taste are far more potent—and its lack of tenderness makes it trickier to use in everyday cooking. Whether you grind or steep it, it’s flavor is worth the time.
How to enjoy it:
In cooking: One teaspoon of galangal root powder can be used to replace about ½ inch of fresh galangal root in recipes.
Soothing skin paste: Mix gangal root powder with water to create a paste; apply paste to skin for relief from minor aches and pains.
Wellness tonic: Add a pinch of galangal root powder to lime juice for a throat-soothing tonic.
