Lemongrass Pandan Drink

It was a nice 2 weeks break.  I enjoyed myself thoroughly and needed to shed that extra kilos that I piled up.

Today I decided to reattempt a Lemongrass Pandan drink as I wanted to achieve that same fragrance and taste as those we had in restaurant.  Somehow I just can't replicate that strong taste of lemongrass.

This time, I used sugar to maintain the colour.

Findings: Though the lemongrass is evident but I still can't achieve that strong taste of lemongrass despite boiling for a longer period. 

Having said that, I did enjoy the nice aroma of lemongrass while it was boiling.

I really wonder whether it is flavouring that do the trick.

What you need:

8 stalks lemongrass, bruised and chopped into 5" long.
9 blades of pandan leaves
Sugar to taste.
1.5 litre water


Scrub lemongrass clean.

Combine lemongrass, pandan leaves and water.

Bring to boil and lower to med heat and boil for 45 mins.

Add sugar to taste.

If you know of a way to attain that flavour, give me a shout out.  Thanks.
