What is Kali Elaichi? Kali Elaichi (काली इलाइची) is the Hindi name for Black cardamom seeds. Commonly, the large (typically, 3 cm), brown pods are sold as a whole. Kali Elaichi has a fresh and aromatic aroma. Camphor is easily discernible in its odour. By virtue of the traditional drying procedure over open flames, the spice also acquires a strong smoky flavour. The Indian names of black card­amom are usually formed from the name of green card­amom​ with an epi­thet meaning black (Hindi, Punjabi and Gujarati kali ilaichi). In India, black card­amom has its special field of ap­pli­cation, and al­though green and black card­amoms are fre­quent­ly inter­changeable, the black variety is felt superior for spicy and rustic dishes
