Cardamom comes from the seeds of several different plants that belong to the same family as ginger.
It has a distinctive flavour that complements both sweet and savoury dishes. People may use cardamom seeds and pods in curries, desserts, and meat dishes, as well as in beverages, such as coffee and chai tea.
The pods that encase cardamom seeds have little flavour on their own, but they are a handy way to keep the seeds contained. Crushing the pod slightly helps expose the aromatic seeds inside. The pods may be removed from the dish before serving, or you can just eat around them.
