Galangal is a rhizome related to root ginger. It is popular in Asian cuisine, particularly Thai, Indonesian, and Malaysian cooking. Galangal is harder and more difficult to grate than ginger, and has a spicier, more citrusy scent.
Galangal has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
