Cardamom Seeds (from green pods)
Cardamom seeds have a pungent perfume and unusual flavour and are often used to flavour curry dishes, meat seasoning, daals and rice dishes. They can also be used to make drinks and desserts. Chewing them on their own releases their sweet and peppery flavour in the mouth, having a cooling, refreshing effect (almost like menthol). These cardamom seeds can save time compared to using whole green cardamom, as you don't have to crush the pods and pluck out the little seeds within.
