Luk Grawan (also known as Luk Krawan, Loog Gra-Waan) is the Thai for "Cardamon/Cardamom". Cardamon seeds/pods or Luk Grawan are the whole dried fruit of the cardamon plant which are used as a spice in many Asian cuisines that include Thailand. In Thai cooking, the white round pod is the preferred type of cardamon seed. These hard shelled pods contain tiny black seeds and are fragrant when cooked. Cardamon is a required ingredient for the famous Southern dish Masaman Curry. Khao Buri ('city' rice), a dish adopted from ancient Arab traders, is another Thai dish which includes this aromatic spice. Cardamon must be stored in a cool dry place in a glass or metal sealed container. They are available in the spice section of most supermarkets.
