Cardamom is a widely used spice in blends that you've probably never used on its own. It's also a key spice for making Chai. You will find it mostly used in Middle Eastern, South East Asian, and Nordic cuisines.

There are three types of cardamom; green cardamom, black cardamom and Madagascar cardamom. You can buy it still in the pods, which are removed and discarded, as seeds or already ground. Buying pods will provide the strongest flavour. Most recipes call for green cardamom. Cardamom has a strong, spicy-sweet taste, though black cardamom is more smokey.
