So, what is green cardamon?

Green cardamom, also known as true cardamom, is a versatile and highly aromatic spice that is native to India and widely used in Indian, Middle Eastern, and Scandinavian cuisine. It is the dried, unripe seed pods of the Elettaria cardamomum plant that are prized for their pungent, sweet, and floral flavor with hints of citrus and mint. Green cardamom is commonly used to flavor chai tea, rice dishes, curries, and baked goods. It is also believed to have medicinal properties, including aiding digestion and freshening breath. This spice is often sold in whole or ground form and is a staple in any well-stocked spice cabinet.
