Galangal, a root in the same family as ginger, is essential in Southeast Asian cuisine. It imparts a sharp, citrusy flavor to curries, soups, and stews. Our galangal peels are from our parter coop on the island of Samosir. The flavor is amazing. Loads of green apple with wasabi like heat. One of the best dishes is steamed chicken covered and stuffed with salt and punded galangal peels.

Galangal peels are best rehydrated in water and then pounded och mixed to a paste. Can also be used whole in broths, soups, curries and pickles. Mix it down and use as a dried powder. The powder losses flavor quick so only make as much as you need.

Galangal is in the family of Zingiberaceae, that includes ginger, cardamum and turmeric. There are 4 main varieties of galangal – Greater galangal, lesser galangal, Chinese ginger and sand ginger. All of them are used in Southern and Southeast Asia in cooking, broths and as traditional medicine.

The plant can grow up to 2 meters with long green leaves and reddish white flowers. The underground shoots of the plant are known as rhizomes and have a peppery, sweet, spicy flavor and strong aroma. Galangal was once widely used in ancient and medieval Europe.

Dried galangal has quite a different taste from fresh galangal and they compliment each other extremely well. The dried spice gives a rather sharp full mouth experience and adds peppery depth to the more sweet, minty eucalyptus character of the fresh rhizome. It goes well in spicy and sour dishes with seafood, chicken, and fish as well as pork. Also a winner in small doses in salad dressing and chili sauces.

We love to use it when we make curries or coconut based dishes and pait it often with Batak pepper, tamarind, lime, lemongrass. When we make our chicken pho it gives a wonderful new flavor profile to the dish. It goes very well with fish sauce and horseradish. Add is to smoothies, golden milk or medicinal teas.

Pair with: Sour and spicy tastes. Chicken, broths, tamarind, Batak pepper, lime, coconut, ginger, chili, lemongrass.
