Converting Indian spices

  • 1

Can someone help me convert:

1 cardamon pod = how much ground cardamon?

1 teaspoon cumin or coriander seed = how much ground?

Thanks!

  1. One pod equals about 1/6 tsp cardamom.

    4 tbsp. ground cumin equals about 4 1/2 tbsp. whole seed

    That's the link I got the info from; I use that website often so I recommend it. It's very useful for substitute information. Have fun cooking!
