This one is going up after a conversation about what you can put cardamom in. The note in the book it comes from (Lord Krishna’s Cuisine) says I made this recipe for an apple demonstration back when I was working for Big Natural/Specialty Supermarket Chain in September of 1995. I remember liking it a lot.
1/4 c. yogurt or sour cream
2 T. chopped fresh mint
3 T. ground blanched almonds
1/4 t. cardamom seeds, crushed (you may use powdered cardamom if that’s what you have)
2 T. orange or lemon juice
3 medium-sized apples, cored and diced
1/2 c. seedless grapes, halved
Blend the yogurt and sour cream, mint, almonds, cardamom and orange or lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Fold in the apples and grapes, cover and chill for at least 1/2 hour before serving.
