Cardamom Pods Brown (Black) Indian




A strong, smokey taste that is quite different from traditional green cardamom.

Other Common Names

Bastard Cardamom, Black Cardamom, Elaichi, Winged Cardamom. Botanical Name: (Cardamomum amomum)

Description & Use

Brown cardamom pods are dark brown in colour and are oval pods about 2.5cm long. The aroma is camphor-like and smokey, quite different to the better known green cardamom. Brown cardamom gives a delicious smokey taste to marinades for tandoori-style cooking, and goes well in butter chicken. This is not interchangeable with green cardamom in recipes.
