    OK. I used, in place a black cardamom seed (which I hadn’t) in the Vegetable Pulav recipe (delicious!), 1/8 teaspoon of ground (green?) cardamom. Manjula says the taste is somewhat different, but usable. In any event it was the first time I made this recipe (leaving out the garnish, and the green chillies as I had none, and no cilantro nor fresh tomato) and despite the omissions and change, it was downright delicious! My wife said I could make it again any time. Thanks for another great one, Manjula!

    If one hasn’t the black cardamom seeds, how much ground cardamom should one use in place of a seed?
