Cooking With Seeds - Cardamom Seeds

Am here with this month's seeds for cooking with seeds event, after going through many seeds my final choice went for cardamom seeds...Cardamom or cardamom seeds is a popular spice used in India and in Middle East..Cardamom seeds are referred to as the Queen of spices, apart from its aromatic fragrance used for flavouring foods, cardamom also many healthy benefits for digestive system in aroma therapy..Caradmom seeds or cloves are used as versatile spice for making out sweet dishes or many spicy dishes also can be grounded into powder with their seeds to spice out many dishes..

Cardamom stored whole in pod form stay for a long because once the seeds are exposed or grounded they will quickly lose their flavour, adding cardamom to rice pudding or any other milk based dishes or beverages like tea which enhance the flavour of the dish and cardamom pods can be chewed as a breath freshener after meals..I cant make kheers or briyanis without cardamom seeds and am damn sure that many of us really agree with me na..So friends make out many dishes with cardamom seeds and send them to this fabulous event..
