Cardamom is a spice used in both sweet & savory cooking that is of Indian origin. MMMmm cardamom. It goes well with coffee too In the arab world, we grind it with our coffee beans. Don't drink it myself but it smells amazing. I use it in everyday cooking. yumyum. In Egyptian rice pudding we use cardamom as well so another vote for adding that

FYI: It comes in the form of pods or ground up seeds of the pods. The pods look like pistachios to me lol. When I was a kid I always asked my mom why she put pistachios in the food. (We put a few pods in our rice, in our meat stews etc. Not so pleasant when u accidentally bite into a whole one tho lol)
Famous last words:

"No, Bunduk, Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
