    • Spices

Black Cardamom – The seeds of several species of the Amomum and Aframomum genera are sometimes sold as a cheap substitute for green cardamom, although they play a distinct role in the cuisine of the Himalayan region. The seeds may be used ground, whole, or encased in the woody pods in which they grow. They impart an astringent, earthy flavour and are used in just about every type of dish, from meats to pickles to confectionery. Black cardamom is one of the essential spices in garum masala, one of India’s most widely used spice mixtures.
