dried ginger flower buds

Went over to my dad’s house on Sunday, and was given a lovely surprise. They just found them in Chinatown! I didn’t think you could find them anywhere over here. And they made assam laksa! I had a happy, happy day.

We hydrated them and they were still kind of chewy, so next time I think I will try using hot water or cooking them to soften the petals. They do have the scent of ginger though, and taste floral and gingery at the same time.
