#1 Cardamom powder
Closely related to ginger, cardamom powder is often referred to as the “Queen of Spices”. It has a typical rugged yet gentle aroma and a slightly floral and complex flavor that can be used to intensify both sweet and savory dishes. A staple of Indian and Scandinavian cuisines, cardamom is known to have potent anti-cancer benefits and is often included in beverages like tea. Moreover, it pairs well with chili powder, caraway, coriander and cumin, and is usually added to take boring drinks to spicy new heights.
