Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives ballpark mustard its bright yellow color.
Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine.
Lemongrass is cultivated around the world for a variety of reasons. It is mainly grown for its oils which have a number of uses such as vitamin A, perfumes, insect spray, cosmetics, perfumes and food and drink. Lemongrass is also enjoyed as a tea throughout the world. The lemongrass stalk is too tough to eat on its own so has to be finely crushed or chopped. It is essential in many Asian cuisines especially Thai dishes giving them a subtle citrus flavor.
Galangal Root (Kha): Galangal, called Kha in Thai and known variously as "galangal" and "Laos root," is an immensely pungent and fiery rhizome related to the common ginger but with a personality distinctly its own. Its abundant usage in Thai cooking, almost to the exclusion of ginger, has earned it the title of Siamese or Thai ginger. In short, it is to Thai cooking what common ginger is to Chinese cooking.
