when life hands you galangal


i'm back tracking a bit, but as i was looking through some photos from our recent trip to india i had to post this one. in month 4 or so, i really began craving different cuisines. i realized how lucky we are in the bay area to have so many cultures mixed together and to have so many food traditions woven together. i thought hard about what i could make while in our house in chidambaram, going to the markets and smelling different greens and roots and decided i would make a thai feast.

i decided to make a green curry and a peanut, red chili eggplant dish with brown rice and green mango salad.

Stumbled on your blog when I was looking up Galangal. Actually, manga inji is probably mango ginger, which is Curcuma amada. Galangal I think is different. I'm really no expert, just got my facts from Wiki.
