    Hi Victoria,

    I\’m a big fan of kueh pulut kaya but always didn\’t have a chance of make my own because all that I can eat is just one slice of the kueh!

    After seeing the beautiful yours, I tell myself that I have to look for an opportunity to make this kueh… Looking around for any gatherings now :p

    It’s very hard to find pandanus leaves in US.
    But I found frozen ones.
    Can you tell me if I can use the frozen leaves to get pandan juice and cook for the syrup?
    Thank you!

    • Victoria (August 23, 2016)

      You definitely can. In fact that’s what I do as I can’t find good pandan leaves in Beijing so I bring loads back when I travel and freeze them. Just thaw , snip into pieces and blend with water per normal

      • Jill (August 23, 2016)

        Thank you so much !
        How much pandan leaves and water I should use to make 100ml pandan juice?
        I also only found frozen banana leaves, it should be fine too?

        • Victoria (August 23, 2016)

          Please do not use banana leaves! They are two totally different things. Banana leaves are primarily used as a base for baking or wrapping food. You can google for recipes to make pandan juice. I usually go by an “estimation” and do not specially record the weight of the ingredients
