i don't think that there is a replacement for cardamom.it has got a unique flavour that is so good.we use it in our sweets and special foods.

If you don't have cardamom, you can substitute ground nutmeg. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cardamom-ba... Or, use ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, coriander seeds or mace, starting with half the quantity specified and adding more to taste. http://www.cdkitchen.com/features/tip/24... It takes 10 whole pods to make 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cardamom.
