Galangal

Galangal is one of the cornerstones of Thai cuisine. Few other regional foods use this fragrant tuber more than Thailand. Galangal is a close relative of ginger. Like it, galangal is the tuberous root of a flowering plant that grows on the forest floor. When mature, galangal plants produce a pale green orchid-like flower that is also edible, although I've never seen it in the markets or used in everyday recipes.
