Prakritiko | Smoked Black Cardamom Powder 70gms


Black Cardamom is a wonder spice native to the hills of Darjeeling. Often referred to as “Bada Alaichi” in our local Lingua, it has been a part of our local cuisine since time immemorial. These are freshly sourced from the small farmers in Lamahatta, Darjeeling who have been cultivating this wonder spice for generations.
They are in the form of pods which are traditionally smoke-dried to give a bold and assertive flavour with a strong aroma. The pods have tough, dried, wrinkly skin, are roughly one inch in length and house small, sticky, dark-coloured seeds. It is the world’s third most expensive spice after vanilla and saffron. The powerful smoky aroma with a subtle hint of menthol gives Black Cardamom a character that is quintessentially Darjeelingé.

Note: The product comes in Upcycled packaging.
