RICH AROMA AND FLAVOR: Galangal root is an aromatic, flavourful alternative to ginger in a range of recipes. Warming and tasty, a small amount of this root will go a long way in your favourite Tom Yum and Tom Kha Soups.
NOT SUBSTITUTE FOR GINGER: Galangal root differs from ginger because it tastes spicy, slightly sweet, and peppery while galangal tends to taste more like pepper. Unlike ginger, galangal root cannot be grated, but it does provide an extra earthy note which is missing from recipes using its more widely available cousin.
HOW TO USE: To infuse a soup, galangal is usually sliced unpeeled. For curry pastes, it's peeled and chopped, then ground with the other paste ingredients. To prep dried galangal, soak the slices in warm water for 20 to 30 minutes until pliable before using.
