    Cardamom (elaichi): The most aromatic of all Indian spices, our very own elaichi is consumed in two forms – green and black pods. Bad breath, loss of appetite, depression, indigestion, nausea; you name it, cardamom cures it. It is a great carminative (causing expulsion of gas), diuretic (causing urination), digestive, expectorant (helps bring up phlegm from lung etc) and stimulant.
