I live in the Philippines and am looking for cardamom pods and I can't find it. Is it called something else or any idea where I can get it?

Arabic Bites said...

Sorry,I don't know exactly where you can find it.
Try buy it online if you want ,Or if you can't find it use ground cardamom.
Hope this help.
