(Galanga, blue ginger, laos) is a rhizomeof plants in the ginger family Zingiberaceae, with culinary and medicinal uses originating from Malaysia and Indonesia. Indonesian/Malaysian called it lengkuas. The rhizomes are used in various Asian cuisines (for example in Thai and Lao tom yum and tom kha gai soups, Vietnamese cuisine and throughout Indonesian cuisine, for example, in Soto).
