Natco Black Cardamom 50g
Black cardamom has a smoky and vaguely camphor-like flavor.
Black cardamom is a key ingredient in India's famous garam masala spice mixture and several other masalas mixes. It is largely used in savory dishes ranging from curries, stews, and dals o pilafs, in Indian cooking. It is mostly used whole and almost always fried in a little oil to cause it to fully release its flavors and aroma.
In China, the pods are used for jin-jin braised meat dishes, particularly in the cuisine of the central-western province of Sichuan. Also, black cardamom is an optional ingredient in Chinese five-spice powder mix.
The pods are often used in Vietnam, where they are used as an ingredient in the broth for the pho noodle soup.
