Cardamom powder recipe with video, how to make elachi powder.
Cardamom powder, elakkai powder recipe using whole green cardamoms. My mom used to make cardamom powder and home and keep it in the refrigerator, which always is handy while making payasam, kheers and even for tea. Many years she was grinding cardamom along with little sugar and store it. Later she started doing this with raw rice and it gives nice volume to the cardamom powder. I have heated the cardamom in a pan as i don't get direct sunlight like how we get in the terrace or balcony. If you have access to terrace keep the cardamom and rice for 2 hours and then grind into a fine powder. Else you can microwave this for a minute and then cool and grind into a powder.
If you have kept the cardamoms in the fridge or freezer, take them out and bring it to the room temperature and then proceed.
Though i don't prefer elachi in my sweets but still add it as it enhances the taste. This cardamom powder is always handy when you are making sweets in a hurry. I have seen few of my friends take out the seeds inside and make a powder and they use the skin of the cardamom in tea. I feel the skin is flavourful too, so don't want them to be discarded. This can be kept in the refrigerator for 6-8 months in a airtight container. Also check out my
