Cardamom is the dried ripe fruit often referred as the “Queen of Spices” because of its very pleasant aroma and taste. Indian cardamom is offered to the international markets in different grades. India is a traditional exporter of cardamom to the Middle East countries. Indian cardamom enjoys a premium preference in the Middle East, Japanese and Russians who relish it for its distinct enriching properties.  It is cultivated under the most favorable climatic conditions without using harmful fertilizers to ensure natural taste.

Cardamom has a strong, unique taste, with an intensely aromatic, resinous fragrance. Black cardamom has a distinctly more smoky, though not bitter, aroma, with a coolness some consider similar to mint.

Green cardamom is one of the most expensive spices by weight but little is needed to impart flavor. It is best stored in the pod, as exposed or ground seeds quickly lose their flavor. Grinding the pods and seeds together lowers both the quality and the price. For recipes requiring whole cardamom pods, a generally accepted equivalent is 10 pods equals ​1 1⁄2 teaspoons of ground cardamom.

Cardamom is a common ingredient in Indian cooking. It is also often used in baking in the Nordic countries, in particular in Sweden, Norway, and Finland, where it is used in traditional treats such as the Scandinavian Yule bread Julekake, the Swedish kardemummabullar sweet bun, and Finnish sweet bread pulla. In the Middle East, green cardamom powder is used as a spice for sweet dishes, as well as traditional flavoring in coffee and tea. Cardamom is used to a wide extent in savoury dishes. In some Middle Eastern countries, coffee and cardamom are often ground in a wooden mortar, a mihbaj, and cooked together in a skillet, a mehmas, over wood or gas, to produce mixtures as much as 40% cardamom.

In Asia, both types of cardamom are widely used in both sweet and savory dishes, particularly in the south. Both are frequent components in spice mixes, such as Indian and Nepali masalas and Thai curry pastes. Green cardamom is often used in traditional Indian sweets and in masala chai (spiced tea). Both are also often used as a garnish in basmati rice and other dishes. It is also included in aromatic bitters, gin, and herbal teas. They lend an aroma and a flavor to the dish that is unmatched and cannot be recreated by any other spice or ingredient. 

Cardamom also finds use in a number of home remedies to treat a number of infections from cold and cough to acidity, blood pressure and blood sugar and even bad breath. Although it's the green cardamom or chhoti elaichi that is most often used in sweets and savories, the black cardamom or moti elaichi is equally beneficial and useful.
