Fresh Kencur Roots -Kaempferia Galanga 50g


Kencur or aromatic ginger is one of the common herbs in Indonesian cuisines as well as traditional Jamu drinks. Known in the botanical world as Kaempferia galanga, kencur is a plant in the ginger family that is found primarily in open areas in Indonesia, southern China, Taiwan, and Cambodia. At a glance, the rhizome (root) of Kencur resembles ginger appearance, but has a different, distinctive flavor. It has a strong taste with a pungent aftertaste.

Kencur is the main herb used in several Indonesian dishes like Urap (mixed vegetables with seasoned grated coconut), Pecel, rempeyek (Indonesian traditional peanut crackers) and a number of sautéed vegetables recipes. Its distinct aroma really characterizes those dishes.

Kencur is a source of zinc, starch, ethyl aster, paraeumarin, borneol, mineral, cinnamic acid, and other nutrition that explain why it is used in many folk-medicine applications for ages, mainly in Southeast Asia.

Indonesian Jamu Beras Kencur is one of the alternative medicines that use Kencur as the main ingredients. So, if you want to experience the health benefits from this herb, you can make Jamu Beras Kencur at home and drink it regularly.
