Cardamom Pods are a multipurpose seasoning, matching both sweet and savoury dishes. The pods are best used by bruising via crushing with the back of a knife, as this helps the distribution of flavour. Cardamom is delicious used in milk based puddings and custards, in sweet-savoury dishes like pumpkin pie and is an essential ingredient in chai tea. It can added, along with cinnamon quills, cloves, cumin seed and black peppercorns, to the boiling water of rice to serve with Indian-style dishes.
Enhances the flavours of sweet potatoes, oranges, apples, pears and Thai style cooking.
Cardamom combines well with caraway, chilli, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, ginger, coriander seed, paprika and pepper.
