This 15 minute, egg-free chocolate pudding is silky smooth with a sophisticated cardamom flavour.
The chocolate and cardamom work wonderfully well together.
Cardamom is one of those spices which work incredibly well in sweet and savoury dishes. Popular in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine – and in Sweden where it is used in cakes, pastries, to flavour drinks and savoury dishes.
The pods and seeds are used to add an exotic intense and complex flavour. They are best used smashed/crushed to release the full flavour. The pods do not pulverise well in a grinder and I would stay away from store-bought powder which is not nearly as flavoursome as the whole pods.
