Cardamom is a beautiful spice with a remarkable flavour and even more remarkable smell. It is not a "hot" spice but a "cool" one. Cardamom is used in food (especially Indian) as a flavour for both sweet and savoury dishes, even to flavour drinks (like masala chai) and mouth fresheners. Flavour of cardamom is quite delicate but can't be missed due to its characteristic aroma. If there is one thing that flavours Indian food in the most versatile way, it is cardamom. I think Cardamom is to Indian desserts as Vanilla is to Western deserts. But the flavour is drastically different from vanilla. Cardamom has a cool flavour. It compliments the sweetness in desserts but in a way that invigorates the sweet rather than add more sweetness. It uplifts the sweet dish, which is why it is a winner for me.
