Pandan Steamed Rice

Pandan Steamed Rice

Pandan is a herbaceous tropical plant with long green leaves. In Southeast Asia, pandan leaves are used to lend a unique taste and aroma to many Thai desserts and some drinks. Pandan leaves can also be used to wrap savory foods.  Pandan paste is used in cakes and desserts, as it is sweet and imbues foods with a bright green color.
