Screwpine Leaves (Daun Pandan)

Daun Pandan

  • Can be found in the frozen section of the Asian grocery store
  • Don't have to thaw before using

  • Just pluck one or a few blades off and wash

  • Sometimes it's used to flavor a dish with its 'green' aroma, and to do so, it's usually knotted and tossed in the cooking dish
  • Other times, a few blades may be made into Pandan juice by blending them with water to produce a light green 'juice' that might be used to make sweet desserts
