How to make Bukayo with Pandan:

  • Boil together buko juice, sugar and pandan leaves until sugar dissolves completely and mixture thickens.
  • Add vanilla extract. Remove pandan leaves. Cook grated coconut in a pan with a little oil until it turns slightly brown.
  • Add syrup and thicken with a little flour or cornstarch diluted in water. Keep stirring so that syrup coats the grated coconut completely, the mixture thickens and bukayo gets cooked completely.
  • When cooked, transfer bukayo to a bowl. Form into small balls while hot.
  • Use plastic wrap or wax paper to insulate¬†your hands from the hot mixture.
