Cardamom, also called Hal, is a spice plant from the ginger plant family used for coffee seasoning and various stews.
Cardamom is a perennial plant containing pods, each pod has between 15-20 seeds.
In my region, true black arab coffee will almost always contain crushed Cardamom and it’s spicy aroma is engraved in my mind.
It originated in South India and Sri Lanka and grawn in Southeast Asia and Guatemala.
It is found in various spice blends such as Garam Masala, Khwaj, Baharat and more.
