Buko Pandan Salad

IJsselstein, Tuesday, 7 October 2003 (updated: Wednesday, 5 October 2005)


8 leaves of Pandan - cleaned well
5 Buko (Coconut)not too hard, not too soft- Grated to strips
Water from 5 Buko (approx. 10 cups)
3 small cans of Nestle Cream
1 medium can of Condensed Milk
2 bars of Green Gulaman
1 3/4 Cups Sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
1 cup Kaong (optional)


  1. Boil buko water from 5 coconuts together with 8 pandan leaves that are individually twisted to break the fibers and expose the juice. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Before adding 2 bars of gulaman, make sure you remove the pandan leaves and check if the remaining coconut water is equal to 8 cups - 1 bar of gulaman is good for 4 cups of liquid. If it is not 8 cups, less will mean hard gulaman and more than 8 cups will result in mushy soft gulaman. Ensuring gulaman is well-dissolved stir well. Add sugar while mixing. Do this for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour through a strainer into cooling trays. Wait till it cools and hardens, then put in fridge.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the grated buko with the 3 cans of cream and 1 can of condensed milk.
  5. Add kaong if you prefer.
  6. Get gulaman from ref and cut into 1 cm cubes. Mix with buko mixture.
  7. Put 2 cups of the buko pandan salad into one lunch box and give to Jojo Basug as a complement.

Enjoy !

Hi,I tried your recipe and I followed your instruction thoroughly but I think there is something wrong with the liquid measurement because the gulaman didn't harden at all. The scent was there but it remained liquid. I modified it by adding 3 sachets of knox unflavored gelatin.That the only time it sets.
