Black Cardamom (Barra Elaichi)

By Published On: 12 Jul '20Last Updated: 12 Jul '20

Black cardamoms are larger than green cardamoms and have a smoky flavour. I use the seeds in making Garam Masala powder as they add a distinct aroma. I also add a pod or two in my biryani and pulao preparations for their rich aromatic fragrance. Black cardamoms are never used in any of my sweet dishes as their distinct flavour does not mix well with the sweet flavour of green cardamoms.
