One of the most popular spices used in rice dishes. The large oval-shaped black pods release a warm, aromatic flavor. Unlike the green pods, this cardamom is rarely used in deserts and sweet dishes. Black cardamom is now a staple in African, Indian and Middle Eastern cooking. Because of the drying process which involves roasting over open fires, black cardamom has a unique smoky flavor and is just excellent in rice. Use sparingly as it has a rich flavour. Available on 20 x 50g pack.
