galangal

plant overview
peppery, pine-like galangal root

Also known as Colic Root and East India Catarrh Root, galangal is a member of the ginger family that is native to South Asia and Indonesia. Its name is thought to be a corruption of a Chinese word that translates to “mild ginger.” The fresh rhizome is used sliced or mashed in Asian cooking much like ginger root, although its flavor profile is a unique combination of black pepper and pine or rosemary. At one time, galangal root was dried and powered for use as snuff. The root also has a history of use in African-American folk magic.
