How can I use black cardamon pods?

I brought back some large black cardamon from Vietnam. They are about the size of a walnut and very fragrant, though much stronger and smokier than green pods. I know they can be used for broth, but how else? Can I somehow grind them for a spice mixture? If so, how do I do that?

Most of the recipes I've seen for black cardamom are long-cooked stews and curries. The pods are kept whole and removed at the end.

With greenstuff, I add them to lentils while cooking them, & toss it out after the dish is finished. they're kind of hard to crack to get at the seeds..
