Pandan in Rice

To achieve an aromatic rice every saing, include few blades of pandan leaves in the steaming.

My only pot of pandan plant, my source of fresh pandan leaves. Just cut few blades for saing purposes

After washing, tie leaves together in the same manner as how tanglad blades are tied. Then place inside the rice cooker or caldero at the start of the saing

The fragrant cooked rice. Ambrosial.

Tudung Dulang

How beautiful this creation from dried dyed pandan leaves

It’s not a hat; it’s a dish cover. So colorful that it makes a pretty wall ornament as covering food to protect from flies isn’t a primary concern any longer. In the present times, screened houses render the usage of tudung dulang as somewhat obsolete.

The making of tudung dulang and other traditional crafts are encouraged (even if used as wall ornaments and bought as souvenirs) just so the tradition won’t disappear and thereby preserving the Bruneian Malay culture.
