Product Description

Size: 3 Oz

We offer very high quality green cardamom pods that are not available in Supermarkets. Our product has very unique taste We sell gourmet grade organic Green Cardamom pods. These green pods have lot of seeds in them since they are picked at full maturity of harvest. Organic green cardamom pods have seeds and full flavor and aroma since pods are picked at peak harvest. Information from Wikipedia: It is a common ingredient in Indian cooking and is often used in baking in Nordic countries, such as in the Finnish sweet bread pulla or in the Scandinavian bread Julekake. In the Middle East, green cardamom powder is used as a spice for sweet dishes, as well as traditional flavouring in coffee and tea. Cardamom pods are ground together with coffee beans to produce a powdered mixture of the two, which is boiled with water to make coffee. Cardamom is used to some extent in savoury dishes. In South Asia, green cardamom is often used in traditional Indian sweets and in masala chai (spiced tea). It is occasionally used as a garnish in basmati rice and other dishes. It is often referred to as fat cardamom due to its size. Individual seeds are sometimes chewed and used in much the same way as chewing gum. Green cardamom is broadly used in South Asia to treat infections in teeth and gums, to prevent and treat throat troubles, congestion of the lungs and pulmonary tuberculosis, inflammation of eyelids and also digestive disorders. It also is used to break up kidney stones and gall stones, and was reportedly used as an antidote for both snake and scorpion venom.

I have used mainly brown cardamom in my coffee every morning and wanted to try the green, so ordered this. I love it! The pods are fresh and quite delightful in coffee. I am a bit obsessed--I look forward to going to bed at night just to get coffee in the morning, especially since adding cardamom to my brew. It has great health benefits and my gut is happy with it! You've got to try it! I grind mine with a mini spice grinder I bought here on Amazon just for cardamom. But be sure to only open the amount of pods you intend to use immediately. The quality declines once you've opened a pod. Green cardamom has a more fruity taste to my mouth, brighter somehow. Brown is smokier and less intense. Both are very good for you and it's definitely worth the investment.

Size Name: 3 Oz
In a few words these pods are both wonderful when ground and are fresh. Once ground the aroma and flavor that are released make these among the best I have ever used.

I first acquired a taste for cardamom when I lived in the Middle East. Both Arabic coffee and Turkish coffee are made with cardamon. The Arabic coffee is difficult to brew because it is made from green coffee beans and green cardamom pods ground together. I have not found a source for green coffee beans where I live. However, Turkish coffee with cardamom is both easy to brew and delicious to my taste.

For regular coffee beans I grind a few pods when I am grinding the beans (a little of this goes a long way), and the brewed coffee has a wonderful flavor (not to mention a wonderful aroma while brewing.) Friends find the taste ineffable. I find it familiar and delicious.

Another way I use cardamom is to make spiced chai (masala chai). I grind a pod with a part of a stick of cinnamon, clove and a single black peppercorn. I mix it in a half and half water and milk mixture that I bring to a boil, add black tea and grate a piece of ginger (or, when I am lazy, use powdered ginger.) For the chai, a nice touch is to sweeten it with Goya Panela Brown Sugar Cane 1 Lb - Redonda, known as "jaggery" in India. Or, for convenience, Turbinado Sugar - 1 box, 1 lb.

To be honest, I sometimes substitute powdered cardamom for pods, such as when I am making a quick Turkish coffee or chai, but when I want to treat myself, I use the pods. Frankly, there is not a ground cardamom I've tried that comes close to grinding the pods right before using them. And for company I never cut corners - these are an essential ingredient that is sure to impress and delight.

Except for the awful plastic container (which I promptly changed out for a nice glass jar) these Green Cardamom pods were *extremely* fresh and wonderful. They smell and taste fantastic. A must have for ethnic dishes of several cultures this Cardamom will suit your needs nicely.

Keep in mind this is an 8 ounce (1/2 pound) container and contains more Cardamom than most people will use in a lifetime.

I have high blood pressure (hypertension), and hate having to go back to the doctor periodically and pay him just so he can tell me I still have high blood pressure and give me another prescription for high blood pressure meds and migraine meds. (My hypertension causes migraines.) I read a study posted online where cardamom lowered test subjects' systolic blood pressure by 20 points and diastolic by something like 12 points over something like 60 days with a dosage of 2 capsules of powdered fresh cardamom per day. (In the study, oddly, they powdered not only the seeds but the pod shell as well, which I don't do.) I decided to try a test on myself, so I ordered this product. This product came in a container whose lid is sealed, which I appreciate. The aroma of the cardamom each time I open the plastic lid is overpowering in a really good way. I eat the cardamom in my oatmeal each morning with cinnamon, honey, and cranberries, which is the best cereal I've ever had in my life. I'm a week into the test, my BP is dropping, and I'm hopeful that in another week my BP will be so low that I'll be forced to start cutting back on my prescribed BP meds. :) I'm a software product manager, so I run experiments for a living, but this is maybe the most satisfying experiment I've ever run in my life.

We were bowled over by the rich flavor of fresh roasted and ground curry that we made from the Indus Organics spice seeds. Relaxing. Invigorating. First use of our new spice grinder. There is nothing like it. The green cardamom pods cracked pretty easy, considering their size, and all were good inside. No duds or mold that we'd read about in reviews of alternate spice sources. All packages are airtight with ziplock resealers. But will likely take advice of another reviewer and vacuum pack and freeze in smaller packs to preserve freshness. Worth the price.

I don't know enough about cardamom to tell you whether this is better or worse than other brands (hence the 4 stars). But I can tell you that it seems very fresh and is very well packaged. Compared to grocery store prices it's a great deal. Would buy again.

Size Name: 16 oz Verified Purchase
The Indus Organic Green Cardamom Pods (16 Oz Jar, Super Jumbo Grade) came in a high quality transparent square container that is easy to store in the freezer until use. On opening the jar, the pods are obviously fresh, bright grass green in color, and each pod is well formed. These pods are extremely fragrant and potent!

I freeze them along with coffee beans so the freshness is locked-in until I grind two pods with two ounces of coffee beans (or a small coffee grinder filled to the rim with coffee beans, in addition to just two Cardamom pods), to make 32 ounces of strong Cardamom flavored coffee in a stainless steel French press. By freezing the Cardamom pods, they grind better. Thawed pods are difficult to grind finely, so you don't get the full effect. You could fill a small coffee grinder with pods, grind, and store the powder in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator for use in herbal tea. Use sparingly in tea unless you like a potent Cardamom flavor that overwhelms all other flavors.

For emphasis, I will repeat these Cardamom pods are so intense in flavor that just two pods in 32 ounces of strong coffee gives a very distinctive Cardamom flavor and aroma that competes with the flavor of the coffee itself. This makes the coffee taste very Middle Eastern and is a nice change from regular coffee.

Google the health benefits of Cardamom to see why you may want to try it!
