A recent trip to Cairns and a visit to their magnificent Rusty’s markets saw me return with a chunk of galangal, with which I indulged my love of south east Asian cooking. After some great dishes, the last bit of this spice went into a satay that attracted a very positive response from She Who Must Be Pleased.
Now I find myself with no more galangal and my usual Asian grocery doesn’t stock it. Does anyone know of a shop or market in Canberra that makes this wonderful tropical spice available to we lowly mountain-dwellers?
A supplier of fresh turmeric would also be great!
