Cardamoms are of two types- Green Cardamom and Black cardamom.
Green cardamom is used to flavour tea, curries, sweet dishes and savoury dishes with its fragrance. It has a rich and pleasing aroma which enriches the flavour of dishes
Black cardamom is used only in savory dishes like curries & biryani. It is an essential ingredient in garam masala (blend of spices). It also has medicinal properties.
Roughly 2.5 to 3 cm in length, Black cardamom pods are dark brown to black in color and have a tough, dried, wrinkly skin. They are highly aromatic but not as much as Green Cardamom. Black Cardamom is dried over a fire and therefore has a slight smoky texture and aroma.
