Similar to ginger in appearance and a member of the ginger plant family. Galanga is used primarily as an Asian or Indian dish. Although it looks like ginger, it varies in flavor from ginger, providing a spicy or peppery taste that may resemble a mild mustard flavor. Galanga root has a dense white-textured flesh that can be fairly hard to slice with a knife when preparing it as a seasoning in curry pastes, soups and other food dishes. To soften the root, it can be pounded or softened by soaking in hot water for a half hour. To store, keep the root dry by placing it in an airtight container. Galanga is available as either “Greater” or “Lesser” Galanga, so if it is labeled as such, the Lesser is the hotter or spicier flavored of the two root varieties.
