Aframomum corrorima is a spice in the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. The spice, known as korarima (corarima), Ethiopian cardamom, or false cardamom, is obtained from the plant’s seeds (usually dried), and is extensively used in Abyssinia (Ethiopia and Eritrea) cuisine. It is an ingredient in berbere, mitmita, awaze, and other spice mixtures.
Ethiopian Black Cardamom seed pods are used as a spice and flavouring. Generally roasted over an open fire and the Smokey aroma adds a distinct flavor to berbere sauces, clarified butter and other chili blends that richly flavour our cuisine.
