We’re all familiar with ginger but have you heard of Ing Makhir Ginger?
It’s a species of ginger that grows in Meghalaya.
What’s special about Ing Makhir Ginger is that it has high amounts of zingiberene and gingerol which makes it super potent, making it the world’s best ginger.
Its strong flavour and aroma give it many uses outside of the kitchen and it has been revered as a medicinal herb in Meghalaya for centuries.
Ing Makhir is a variety of ginger native to Meghalaya that is highly valued for its strong medicinal properties as compared to the common ginger root. Ing Makhir contains zingiberene, an essential oil that contributes its strong distinct flavour.
An age-old tradition of the Khasis used a herbal formulation comprising of Ing Makhir ginger and other herbs to treat an ailment found in new-borns or infants known as “Niangsohpet” (‘Niang’ means germs and ‘sohpet’ means navel in the Khasi dialect.)
Niangsohpet is a form of infantile diarrhoea or irregular bowels which is accompanied by the yellowish colour of the skin known as neonatal jaundice. This ancient folk remedy contains a mixture of various herbs which also include Ing Makhir as an effective ingredient.
Though Ing Makhir is utilized and valued for its uses in medicine, the rhizome is also used to make one of Meghalaya’s most famous ethnic side dishes- Tungrymbai which is a popular fermented soybean chutney.
Gingerol is an active compound found in ginger just as piperine in black pepper. It is known to give ginger its analgesic or pain-relieving properties. It is also one reason why ginger can be taken while one is feeling nauseous or having indigestion. The presence of bioactive compounds such as gingerol in ginger determines the price of ginger in the market.
It is a pale yellow coloured powder with a very pungent taste and a hot flavour. The chemical compounds, 6-shogaol, zingiberene, and zingerone make the ginger hot and peppery. Rich in vitamin C and magnesium, this ginger variety has many health benefits.
