It seems we all love cardamom but haven't posted many recipes as the OP requested.

Here's a link to a recipe for butter chicken using cardamom.

Baked Apples & Baked Pears, Flan & Vanilla Mousse

Desserts in which vanilla is an ingredient pair very aromatically ... Also can enrich a flan caramel custard and baked fruits ... Indian people have a real penchant for this herb, cardamom ...

Since Purim is tomorrow! YAY! It is Hamantashen time! So it usually consists of a simple dough and then you go nuts with the fillings, chocolate, poppy, apricot, prune, etc. And my personal fav is a mixture of ground walnuts, dates, cardamon, and sugar (sorry I do not have exact measurements but its pretty much to taste). Anyway Here is a recipe for the dough (the dough recipes are pretty much all the same so I just picked one - The Perfect Hamantaschen - NYTimes.com But you can google for a dough recipe of your liking

But its the filling that you can experiment with. Date/walnut/cardamom is very traditional. Happy Purim!

Indian Roast Lamb

I have found a recipe though I haven´t tried it ... yet ...

The 4 cardomam pods are opened along with nutmeg, cinammon, cilantro, garlic, ghee, blk pepper, cayenne, paprika, cumin and a rub is created for the lamb prior to roasting ... the lamb has a drizzle of lemon juice ( 1 tblsp prior to spice rub ) and it is roasted for 50 mins - 1 hr. Lamb is cooked in own juices, with bay leaf a little water, and a head of garlic in slits in the roast.

Sounds good ...

That's a killer idea!
