This is a tasty rice. I used 1/4 teaspoon of Pandan extract. I buy Pandan from a local Asian Grocery Store. The name brand of the Pandan is "Aroma Pasta" it is in a tiny 30ml plastic bottle. It does not say extract on the bottle but it does say PANDAN. It is used in Asia similarly as we Americans use Vanilla Extract. I also purchased fresh lemongrass and fresh kaffir lime leaves from an international farmer's market. I suggest buying "Thai Kitchen ORGANIC coconut milk" found at wholes foods for it doesn't have sulfates in it. Turmeric is a spice you can find at any Indian Grocery Store. I hope this helps to inspire you to make this tasty dish. Beverlyann

I'm not going to rate this since I had to make so many substitutions for the recipe. I couldn't find Pandan, nor could I really find a suitable replacement. Had to replace the lemon grass with lemon zest and the kaffir lime leaf with lime zest. I know, it couldn't possibly taste as it should thus I am not rating it. As I did make it, it was very good. My daughter especially liked it as did my dh leaving my son and I less enthusiastic. I'm even having a hard time describing it. Nutty, sweet, a little zip from the zest with that unique something that the turmeric adds. (which was a little bitter, I would decrease it next time). Thanks for posting this and giving our taste buds a new adventure tonight. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.
