The best thing about elaichi is that even a little goes a long way. The spice is so strong that even a pinch makes a world of difference to the food. Saffron and nutmeg together with cardamom makes the ultimate trio of spices, especially for Indian Desserts. Whether it's a dry sweet like Amrit Peda or a something like Basundi, cardamom goes with both.

Even though used in so many types of sweets, it reacts differently and does not let any two desserts taste the same. The most known dessert with cardamom would be the Indian response to ice-cream – Malai Kulfi – which is made with simple ingredients milk, condensed milk and corn flour. Moreover, cardamom is also preferred as a garnish over certain sweets like Jalebis. This shows the versatility of cardamom in dessert preparation.
