  2. Spread some ground meat mixture on a round of aubergine and top with another, pressing gently to form a "sandwich". Coat the sandwich like aubergine thinly with flour, dip into the beaten egg and then with bread crumbs. Heat up some oil in a pan. Deep-fry the sandwich aubergines until golden brown.

Hi angie..
According to my knowledge both Lesser Galanga and sand ginger are same.. check here
You can use greater galanga in a similar way to lesser a substitute.Greater galanga is also called thai ginger.

when it comes to zedoary is a cousin of turmeric..but it is a white turmeric..but we people generally use turmeric(which is in orange/yellow color in all te curries)I dont know much about white turmeric..but you can add those to any curries/soups for thickening the curiies..

we generally use ginger which is available in indian /american shops and i will use that in most of the non veg curries and some veg curries too can see one of my nonveg curries will understand how i am using in curries.

These all are belongs to ginger family..
