Although you can buy ground cardamom at your local grocery store, you will likely be missing some of the flavour of the original seed because the essential oils start to lose flavour soon after the seeds are ground. Dip a toothpick in your bottle of Cardamom oil and swirl the toothpick directly into your recipe; this will give you just the right amount of flavour.
