  • 12-1 teaspoon ground cardamom (the local ingredient is called cao guo, it's a dark-brown cardamom pod a bit larger than a nutmeg)

Directions

  2. Press into shallow, heat-proof bowl (pasta bowl or something similar--glass, ceramic, or metal).
  3. Steam 20 minutes until done and serve as part of a Chinese meal: rice, a soup, and a balanced variety of dishes--one per person.
