Black cardamom pods are rougher than green cardamom. In fact, you might call the flavor downright abrasive at times. This rugged quality is what makes it so delightful in rubs and spice blends such as garam masala. 

A spice often mentioned on cooking shows, black cardamom adds rich flavor to a variety of dishes. Similar to cinnamon, try adding cardamom to your morning oatmeal with some vanilla and brown sugar for a different way to wake up. You could also add it to black or green tea for a yummy chai-like treat. Cardamom is also great in a variety of baked goods. The most popular and most traditional use for cardamom, however, is in curry dishes and other Indian cuisine.  Use with other spices to add different layers of flavor.


Black cardamom is loaded with aromatic fragrances and contains numerous health benefits. From increasing your appetite to curing your headaches, it can also help to relieve mental and emotional stress. They are extremely good for your hair, skin and body. Added benefits include:
  • Helps with stomach ulcers and gastrointestinal health
