Description

The hero of masala chai, cardamom. Flavourful and delicate, but also pungent and astringent. From the ancient texts of Ayurvedic and Unani medicine, to the Arab spice trade - cardamom is the official queen of spices. Join food researcher Ragini and Chef Keith as they talk about eating, understanding and contextualising this beautiful spice. Why is it used in so many of the subcontinents' desserts? How much cardamom does India really use? Where does the "best quality" cardamom grow?  Grab a cup of tea (cardamom, preferably), sit back and listen to More than Masala.
