With a rich, earthy, smoky aroma, our Black Cardamom - offered in ground or whole form - is a key ingredient in the warming blend of Garam Masala, which is used to enhance the taste of a variety of north Indian curries. That warming, complex flavor also pairs well with beef, especially in slow cooked stews and soups.
While Black Cardamom is more often used in savory dishes, its complexity of flavor isn’t truly appreciated until it is mixed into something sweet. Try adding the smoky spice into a blend for chai tea, or into coffee beans for a warming twist to your morning cup.

Try our black cardamom in a recipe for Smoky Vanilla Ice Cream, or in a slow cooked beef recipe like Vietnamese Pho, Asian-style Beef Barley Soup, or even adding in a pod to a hearty Minnesota Beef Stew.
