What is Galangal?

Galangal is related to Ginger. You can usually buy it in Asian stores. It is a popular seasoning ingredient in Thai food. Most cooks like to cut the Galangal in thin match-like strips. Because Galangal is denser and harder than Ginger it needs a longer cooking time.

It is used to flavour curries, soups, chicken, beef and vegetable dishes. When you purchase this product try and find a smaller and more tender one as it will be much easier to work with rather than the large harder one. It is noted for helping stomach upsets, gas and cramping.
