Indian sweets and cardamom
Cardamom plays an integral part in Indian sweets. It highlights the flavors of the sweet and tempers the sweetness a bit. A mixture of spices packs a punch and along with sugar or jaggery gives an added dimension to the sweetness. Cardamom encased in its green pod with small black seeds is the more desired one than the larger sized black cardamom. Generously used in Indian desserts, the aroma and flavor of green cardamom is charming in its familiarity and welcoming in its intensity and promise of taste.
Indian sweets like Gulab Jamun, made of deep-fried balls and evaporated milk solids (khoya) then soaked in sugary syrup with Gulab pani (rose water) is not complete without cardamom powder. Gajar Halwa made from carrots, usually, the red variety along with milk and sugar has cardamom to make it lip-smackingly delicious. Kulfi is another Indian specialty dessert that has powdered cardamom that compliments the nuttiness of this thick special ice-cream. Cardamom takes desserts to a new level of indulgence with its special flavor and taste.

Green cardamom is reputed to be the most aromatic of all the varieties of cardamoms. Cardamom is native to India and is uniquely fragrant. Cardamom oil and essential oils derived from cardamom are used extensively in cosmetics and skin creams. Cardamom is also believed to be a nerve stimulant and believed to act as an aphrodisiac. The best cardamom is grown in the Wayanad region and the Hill Ranges of Idukki in Kerala. Cardamom has been planted here for generations and the farmers know how to take care of it well.
