lengkuas rhizome in the soil
a knife to dig and cut
Call it whatever we like. Lengkuas, galanga, blue ginger, or lam keong . It tastes the same... citrusy, earthy aroma with a hint of pine and soap in the flavour.
That day..., sunday morning...., Kakdah required lengkuas and serai for her rare and special menu. The boys were all home. They knew, Kakdah will always come up with her best menu. So I had to step into the garden and dug and cut a little bit of the rhizome of lengkuas. The cut piece is a shoot and the flesh is watery and delicious looking. She needs serai or lemon grass as well......
