Galangal, also known as Laos root, Kah, Galanga or Siamese ginger, comes from the rhizome family. Being from the same family as ginger, it looks similar but tastes different. Galangal has a sharp peppery, almost citrusy flavor.
Besides adding the zing to Asian cuisine, it has many medicinal usages. It helps lower blood pressure. It can be used as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, as well as a pain reliever, too.
