Usage & Storage Tips

Use of Culinary Black Cardamom in Indian Cuisine:

While not as widely used as green cardamom in India, cooking with black cardamom is common in regional cuisines:

  • South Indian Dishes: It is a common ingredient in South Indian curries, lentil dishes (sambar), and spice blends like sambar powder.
  • Mughlai Cuisine: Black Cardamom spice is added to the rich and flavorful Mughlai cuisine from North India for its smoky depth.
  • Masala Chai: Aromatic Black Cardamom can be included in some masala chai variations for a smoky and complex flavour addition.

Black Cardamom Recipes:

Black cardamom, with its smoky and complex flavour profile, can elevate various dishes. 

South Indian Delights:

  • Sambar: This hearty lentil stew from South India often features black cardamom for a deep, smoky flavour.
  • Rasam: A tangy and spicy tomato-based lentil soup from South India, where it adds a unique smoky note.
  • Coconut Curry: It is included in vegetable or seafood curries with a coconut milk base for a touch of smoky complexity.
  • Dosa Batter: Some South Indian dosa batter recipes incorporate black cardamom for a subtle smoky note in the fermented crepes.

Beyond South India:

  • Mughlai Curries: It is used sparingly in richer North Indian curries like Rogan Josh or Korma for a hint of smokiness that complements the other warm spices.
  • Biryani Variations: Some regional Biryani variations, like Lucknowi Biryani, might incorporate a touch of black cardamom for a smoky depth of flavour.
  • Spiced Rice: It adds a unique twist to flavoured rice dishes like Jeera Rice or ghee rice.

Tips for Using Black Cardamom:

  • Whole vs. Crushed: Black cardamom is typically used whole in dishes. Crushing it releases a more intense flavour, but use it sparingly due to its potency.
  • Removal Before Serving: Black cardamom pods are meant to infuse flavour during cooking and should be removed before serving as they are unpleasant to eat whole due to their tough texture.
  • Balance is Key: Black cardamom has a strong flavour. Start with a small amount (one or two pods) and adjust according to your preference.
