Black cardamom is often added to Garam masala blends and also to chai tea; it has a rich, warming and smokey aroma which lends itself to Indian and African cuisines. It is also used to add a smoked bacon type of flavour to some vegetarian products. Add to dal and rice dishes or try grating a little black cardamom over honey roasted vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkin, add to samosas and onion bhaji’s, or why not add a little to nut roasts and burger mixes with an Indian flavour?
