Cardamom Powder

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.

  • 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.
