Spice, Black Cardamom



Peppery, smoky, and warming.

Indian Black Cardamom pods are used in many savory Pakistani and north Indian dishes such as chicken tikka masala and lamb curries. An eccentric spice, black cardamom is more earthy and aromatic than green cardamom, with a less pronounced peppery taste. It tends to be less sweet. The difference between black and green cardamom is important to remember: black is not an effective green cardamom substitute.
