EZ Pandan Coconut Filling

This is an EZ pandan flavoured coconut filling that can be used for buns and paus.  I prepared this filling using my recipe for Brown Sugar Coconut filling by substituting brown sugar with white sugar and adding pandan paste.  It is easy, simple and fast to prepare but most important, it is tasty [really has the pandan flavour] too.

200 gm freshly grated white coconut [available at the wet market]
100 gm white sugar [sweetness is just nice] - health conscious
50 ml fresh milk [I used 1 tbsp skimmed milk powder mix with water/pandan water]
1 tsp pandan paste
1 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
a drop of green colouring [optional]
  1. Melt butter in non stick pan on low fire.  Add in sugar, salt and milk.  Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add in pandan paste and grated coconut.
  3. Continue stirring until the mixture is almost dry.
  4. Off fire and leave to cool [can prepare and keep in fridge before using].
Step 1 and 2

EZ way to prepare pandan paste 

[Refer to Nasi Lemak Lover Blog]

25 pieces screwpine [pandan] leaves - cleaned and cut small pieces
300 ml water
  • Blend together pandan leaves and water until fine.  Strain and squeezed for the juice.  Discard the residue.  Strain again and store in a plastic container.
  • Leave in fridge for about 3-5 days before use. 
  • Pour away the pandan water and scoop out the pandan paste for use.
Did not take any pictures before using the pandan paste.  Will remember the next time.
