Coming from Bali a month ago, I was frustrated to not find some of the ingredients that we used there like galangal and lesser galangal, candlenuts, etc. So when I was shopping in SM Aura ( I did warn you) and found some dried galangal for only P66/pack, I got excited! 🙂 After all, it was one less indonesian root to source.

:) like wood, what did I tell you?

This is Foodex brand, same brand as my sriracha sauce, and originally from Thailand. I know Thai has very broad uses of galanggal as well, and it was just cool to randomly find it. I have no idea if this would taste as the real thing. but it does smell the same, though less punget. 🙂

It look so woody though 🙂

Now to find a recipe using galanggal 😀
