How do we use this product?
Its leaf extract is often mixed with steamed rice and coconut milk to make a savory Malaysian dish called nasi lemak. It’s also used to flavor soups, stews, and curries.
What’s more, whole leaves are used to wrap meats before steaming or grilling, infusing them with a unique taste. The leaves and fruits of certain varieties can also be juiced.
In desserts, pandan is often paired with coconut. For example, its bright green extract is incorporated into a crepe-like batter, then stuffed with sweetened browned coconut to make an Indonesian dessert called dadar gulung.
Pandan has non-culinary uses, too. For instance, to create a topical ointment for joint pain, infuse coconut oil with pandan leaves. Test it on a small area of your skin to ensure that you don’t have any allergic reactions, such as redness or itching.
