Temulawak, botanically classified as Curcuma xanthorrhiza, is an underground rhizome that grows from an herbaceous plant reaching two meters in height and belongs to the Zingiberaceae or ginger family. Also known by many local names including Javanese ginger, Tem Labak, and Koneng Gede, Temulawak grows in tropical forests and is native to Indonesia. Temulawak is one of the rarer members of the ginger family, often overshadowed by common ginger and turmeric, but it is increasing in popularity as the consumer market is shifting its focus on natural, healthy ingredients. Temulawak is predominately used as a medicinal aid and is utilized in drinks known as jamu.
Temulawak contains curcumin, which is a yellow chemical found in the rhizome that contains high anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is believed to aid in digestion. The rhizome also contains some vitamin C, iron, potassium, and manganese.
Temulawak is best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as boiling, stir-frying, and sautéing. When used young and fresh, the rhizome can be blended into smoothies, drinks, or cooked as a vegetable. The rhizome can also be dried and steeped as a tea, cooked with sugar into a soft drink, or dried and made into a starch that is used in pudding, porridge, yogurt, custard, and gum. In cooked applications, Temulawak is commonly sliced and stir-fried, chopped and boiled in soups, used to flavor rice, or mixed into sauces for cooked meats. Temulawak pairs well with meats such as poultry, beef, pork, and fish, chayote, cucumbers, shallots, garlic, lemongrass, turmeric, and lime leaves. The rhizome will keep for one month when stored in a paper or plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
In Indonesia, Temulawak is traditionally used in jamu, which is an herbal drink incorporating different roots, leaves, and fruits. Utilized in natural medicine practices for over one-thousand years, jamus are used to help reduce symptoms of nausea, stomach-aches, headaches, spur digestion, and increase appetite. The drinks are typically sold at health food centers and by local street vendors who grind the fresh ingredients together in a blender or with a mortar and pestle. Common jamu ingredients include Temulawak, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, fennel leaf, palm sugar, jasmine, cherry, and tamarind, and locals often consume at least one jamu per day to receive its nutritional benefits.
Temulawak is native to Java, an island in Indonesia, and has been cultivated since ancient times. The rhizome was then spread to neighboring countries in Southeast Asia via trade and immigration and was also spread into Asia for its medicinal properties. Today Temulawak can be found fresh or dried at local markets and specialty grocers in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, China, India, Japan, Korea, and select parts of Europe.
