Elettaria Cardamomum has a sweet exotic perfume unlike any other spice. Use it in savoury dishes (notably curries) and sweet – cardamom goes beautifully with apples, pears and other fruit. Cardamom is found in many spice mixes throughout south Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. The pods are naturally green – if white, they are either old or chemically bleached. Bruise pods and use whole or toast slightly, split open, and remove and grind the dark seeds within. It is a common spice in many Asian curries and is a primary ingredient in masala chai. Because cardamom is costly, what is passed off as ground cardamom is often adulterated.
