Chitharathai is botanically known as Alpinia galanga. It is a rhizome that is used in both culinary and medicinal applications. While it looks similar to (and is related to) ginger, it tastes nothing like ginger. Galangal has a soapy, earthy scent and a pine-like flavour with a subtle citrus note when used uncooked. It is available in the form of a powder.
