cardamom powder can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Add it to spiced rice dishes or stir into soups, stews, curries and tagines. For your sweet tooth, try adding some to your pancakes, shortbread or apple cake mix. Cardamom can also be added to spice mixes when stewing fruit, making chutneys, and even to ice-cream and chocolate truffles. The options are endless.
