Black cardamom is often regarded as the poor cousin of green cardamom pods and sometimes unfairly called bastard cardamom or false cardamom.

Black cardamom is a useful and authentic spice in its own right.

Black cardamom smells more medicinal than green cardamom with a hint of pine smoke. Black cardamom's flavour is almost peppery and eucalyptus-like similar to Grains of Paradise.

Black cardamom is used in many Indian dishes, chutneys and pickles.
