Kaempferia galanga, commonly known as kencur, aromatic ginger, sand ginger, cutcherry, or resurrection lily, is a monocotyledonous plant in the ginger family, and one of four plants called galangal. It is found primarily in open areas in Indonesia, southern China, Taiwan, Cambodia, and India, but is also widely cultivated throughout Southeast Asia.
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.
