Per the Cook's Thesaurus 1 cardamom pod yields 1/6 teaspoon cardamom. I'd probably add a teaspoon of cardamom powder, and add more to taste if needed toward the end of cooking the compote.

Thanks HLA! Just saw this. If you're looking for the pods, I used green ones, NOT black ones. Very different in flavor. Each pod had about 10 - 12 tiny seeds. Crushed, they came to closer to 1/4 teaspoon, so I'd probably start with that and then add more to taste at the end. Just to be safe.
