To buy “European” bread in Indonesia is a huge challenge. European means not sweet. Well, in China I have seen much weird stuff but never green bread!
This is actually cake which you can find near other kinds of bread, sliced like a bread and look like a bread. What is inside then?
Extract from Pandan leaves.
It gives delicate nutty flavor and Indonesian can use it to different kind of meals from fried chicken until desserts. It is also popular in Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese and Filipino cuisine.
When in the hotel we’ve got green pancakes we thought it’s coloured with avocado.
No! Be smarter than we have been, that’s pandan leaves! 🙂
