Recipes using Eastern Indian Spices?

When DD#2 was tea shopping for me at the health food store, she found a whole spice blend labeled “Indian Spice”.  I would love to use it somehow, but I don’t know what to do with it.  This is not garam masala.  I have some of that and I enjoy it, but this is different.  I have checked out the LDL Indian style recipes by Little Mary and BookGuy.  I probably need to research this through Madhur Jaffrey online. 

The Indian Spice is a blend of seven spices:  fennel, clove, anise, black peppercorn, dried ginger, and cinnamon bark.  There is another seed that I can’t identify.  It’s very tiny (slightly larger than an anise seed), cylindrical, brownish black and has a slightly scaly exterior like a tiny pinecone might look.  It’s crunchy and bursts with a floral fragrance when you bite it.  I tasted a couple of them before noticing that they look a little like black larvae of some kind (gross).  Does anyone know what that seed is?  I’m fairly certain they are not black mustard or cumin seeds. 

I tried brewing the spice blend into a tea and drinking it, and cooking lentils and dark brown rice with it.  I ground it as a spice for chickpeas and as a rub on grilled chicken.  I know I’m missing something, but don’t have a clue what that is.

Ideas, anyone?

I'll betcha a dollar you're talking about cardamum, Gwennie.  What you should do with them is break open the outside pod, and then the little black things that look like mouse droppings inside the pod are what you want to eat.  If you have a morter & pestle, pound them up with that.  If not, just place some between two teaspoons and crush them to release the fabulous flavor.  :D

You are probably right.  I remember from my 7th grade Home Ec class that cardamom pods have to be cracked open, but I didn't remember what the insides looked like.  They do look like mouse droppings.  Not that I would have any way of knowing what those look like ... :rolleyes: 

I don't have the pods, just the tiny seeds dispersed throughout the spice blend.  I have become fascinated with this mystery.  I actually sorted out all the little bits & tasted them.  That's how I knew it has seven ingredients.

So how and what do I cook with this particular Indian Spice blend?  Same things as with the garam masala?  Right now I'm using it as a sachet in my kitchen towel drawer!  I used to put the garam masala in couscous and have since used it in your curry recipes where it is suggested.

Hi,

I have recently moved to Sydney, Australia with my family. We all love Indian food very much but I don't have any idea from where I could purchase Indian spices in Sydney.

So please suggest me some local shops in Sydney?

Thanks in advance.
