Occasionally, I try to fuse Indian flavors into my desserts or turn my traditional Indian recipes into something not so traditional. I’ve never truly loved traditional Indian sweets but I am learning to experiment with flavors more and more. Cardamom has become a favorite. 

Gnaana is an Indian parenting resource with a great retail site as well as a blog that addresses how to incoporate traditions into our multicultural lives. They have been having fusion food week on their blog. I’m excited to be a contributer and you can read all about my  inspiration for these Cardamom Chocolate Truffles and find the recipe there.

Great post. I remember when I was younger, I’d shy away from anything with pista or cardamom as well. My main dislike stemmed from biting down on them when having kheer. I’d either get stung with the strong spicy taste, or have them stuck in my teeth. I still shy away from them, but I love using cream infused with cardamom in desserts :) Good call on these truffles.

Cardamom is one of my favorite dessert spices! I bet these are amazing truffles.
