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.

well, i just spoke with my sister in P.I. and answered me that the kind of nestle cream that you needed to use is the one in the can. The nestle cream that's in the tetra pack is more creamy.

why add 10 cups of buco juice as part of the ingredients - if it would cause the recipe to spoil faster?????????

I give my buko pandan a twist by adding 1 can of lychee. Cut it into strips. The liquid I use in my green gelatin is the syrup of the lychee then I just add water.

Hello guys! If you're using fresh buco meat, make sure to wash it in water to remove the buco water that causes your buco pandan to spoil faster! :)

I thank this site for providing an interesting way of cooking things like this. Also, Kaye thanks for your different recipe. I've been looking for this pandan salad with cheese since my relatives keep bringing something like it in christmas and I love the taste. Now, I know why they put cheese there (as you said, to balance the sweetness of the pandan salad due to the milk). Thanks for the both of you. Merry Christmas!

Hi!! I just wanna share my recipe of buko pandan... INGREDIENTS: 4 packs of unflavored gelatin(green would be better or in christmas you could combine green and red...) 2 condensed milk(396 g) 2 cans of nestle table cream (237mL) 2 cans of coconut meat 1 small can of evaporated milk(optional) 1/2 pack small sago (the smallest type of sago) 1/2 cheese, cubed(small)(the cheese that I use is Velveeta) 1 tsp of buko pandan extract 1.)Make your gelatin a little firmer by taking off 1/4 of the water that you were supposed to have. I put about 2 tbsps. of sugar in my gelatin to add flavor. Cut it in cubes. 2.)Cooked sago according to the directions. I used the smallest sago because when I used the bigger sago like the one's we used in making boba tea, its not that fully cooked..) 3.)Grate buko meat into thin strips..(ooppss, drain the buko meat first because you don't need it) 4.) In a medium bowl, mix 2 cans of cream and 1 can of condensed milk first. Add the second condensed milk if you think that its not sweet enough. You may add the evaporated milk if you want to. Add about the buko pandan extract. Don't put a lot of it because it will get bitter. Remeber, the extract is not for flavoring, it only enhances the smell of food. 5.)Mix in the gelatin, buko meat, sago and cheese into the milk mixture. Add as many cheese as you like. (I add cheese to my buko pandan because it balances the flavor of the milk which is sweet. 6.)When I served it, i put small cubes of ice in it. If it looses its sweet flavor due to the ice, you may add condensed milk.. 7.)Keep refrigerated and enjoy..... Servings 5-10 people

I have the McCormick buko pandan flavoring. Although it is green in color, it only gives flavor. It does not give a greenish hue to the salad.

Thank you for this great recipe. I just made it and it's definetely delicious. I used this new McCormick Buko Pandan flavoring. It already has that green coloring in case you can't find the green agar (like what happened to me today! LOL!)

Hello, were you able to look for a substitute for pandan leaves? Just go to your nearest supermarket & buy "pandan" flavoring. Mix it with your gulaman after straining. Lucille here.

If we can't have the real pandan leaves, can we substitute something for it? My hubby really likes it but we could not have fresh pandan leaves.

Dear Annabel, Panda is screw pine. You can find Pandan Extract from Oriental stores. Use it like you would vanilla extract to flavor the coconut water.
