Ground galangal, fresh relative of the ginger

Ground galangal comes from the galangal plant, the root of which is used as a spice. It is related to ginger, which explains its mild ginger flavour. Galangal and ginger are very similar. In terms of smell, ground galangal is reminiscent of citrus and pine trees. The powder is also called ground Thai ginger or ground galangal root. The spice originates from Indonesia, which is still one of the largest exporters of galangal. You can buy ground galangal online at Natural Spices in a package of 300 grams, 800 grams or 3 kilos.

Use ground galangal in dishes

The spice can be used fresh, dried or pickled. The fresh, thinly sliced galangal can be removed from your dish before serving. Fresh spice tastes a lot stronger than ground galangal. The great advantage of the powder format is that at the end of the preparation process you no longer have to carry out any additional action. Before you use it, you often make the ground galangal together with other herbs or spices into a kind of paste. The ground spice has a somewhat peppery ginger flavour and is able to give a fresh nuance to your dish. Its flavour is also sometimes compared to that of cardamom. Ground galangal spice is used in Asian cuisine. You can use the galangal powder in soups, vegetable dishes and curry dishes. Galangal also does well in stews such as fish or meat.

Galangal as a medicine

In order for it to be used in various dishes, you can also use ground galangal for other purposes. The spice is known to be very healthy for several reasons. For example, it stimulates digestion and ensures that vitamin C and E are well absorbed by your body. This is thanks to the active ingredient galangin. Galangal is also regarded as a protective factor against inflammation. It has been used in Asian countries for centuries. Buying a stock of crushed galangal online is therefore not only an asset for your kitchen, but also for the medicine cabinet.
