Making my own cardamom powder at home is something I look forward to every couple of months. I use homemade cardamom powder in baking and other delightful dishes.
Servings: 1 jar
- ½ cup whole cardamom pods
At first, I lightly roast my cardamom pods on a skillet, gentle enough to prevent the burning of the delicate seeds (roughly around 3 mins on low heat).
I let the roasted pods cool before grinding them up in a blender or food processor.
After they are sufficiently grounded (the finer the better), I sift the powder from any larger chunks into a different container; if there are still large pieces left after sieving, I grind them further with mortar and pestle until there are no big pieces left.
Then all that's left for me to do is enjoy the warm and fragrant aroma of my homemade cardamom powder!
- Once you have finished grinding the cardamom pods, store the powder in an airtight container. This will help maintain its freshness and aroma for a longer period of time.
