From the same botanical family as ginger, this hard-to-find rhizome has an earthy, somewhat peppery flavor and is used to brighten dishes and add a touch of heat. Angkor Foods dried-and-ground galangal is slightly sweeter than ground, without any of the bitterness it can possess. In savory dishes, it can impart a mustard-like pungency; try substituting it for the ground ginger.
We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.
Roughly 1 tablespoon of galangal powder is equal to 2 tablespoons minced fresh galangal or ginger. Use to enhance Thai curries, soups and stews or for a sweeter, mellower take on ground ginger. Galangal is especially useful if you don't have fresh ginger on hand. In sweet dishes, this spice has woodsy notes reminiscent of cinnamon.
