So, what is black cardamom?

Black cardamom is a highly aromatic spice that belongs to the ginger family. Unlike its green counterpart, black cardamom has a smoky, resinous flavor with a hint of camphor, making it a popular ingredient in savory dishes, especially in Indian, Middle Eastern, and Chinese cuisine. The pods of black cardamom are larger and coarser than those of green cardamom, with a rough exterior and a dark brown color. Black cardamom is typically used in spice blends, marinades, and stews to add depth and complexity to the dish. Due to its bold flavor, black cardamom should be used sparingly, and the pods are often removed before serving.
