In India, Sri Lanka and Madagascar, green cardamom is undoubtedly the most popular spice, especially for its complex and intense taste. Of all the varieties of cardamom, the Himalayan green cardamom that we offer is the seed traditionally used in India. Pods are dried immediately after picking to keep their scent and bright green color. To guarantee a higher level of quality, this cardamom is collected in the regions of the South Himalayan in the North-East of India, in Nepal and in Bhutan. It grows in a cold and humid environment, in the shade of vegetation, at an altitude between 800-2000m.
Use sparingly, green cardamom provides gentle diffused heat in teas, desserts, but also in curries, Indian dahls (lentil soups). Cardamom goes perfectly with saffron. In India, it is also used to freshen the breath after a meal.
