cooking experience

I don't want to cook the pandan leaves

My neighbors all know that I cook lots of food. They think that I must know what to do with any ingredients. So they very often give me a lot of ingredients for cooking. Yesterday, a neighbor very kindly gave me a bunch of pandan leaves. I can use pandan leaves to make soup, tea, sweet coconut dressing, dessert, flavor rice, wrapping sticky rice, wrapping grilled fish. According to tradition, pandan leaves also act as a kind of herbal medicine that is good for cooling our body's internal heat.

But at the moment, I really don't want to make any special dishes, or add any special flavor to my food – my tastebuds need a rest. I don't want to use the bunch of pandan leaves for cooking immediately. But I especially don't want to waste my neighbor’s kindness .

Suddenly, I had an idea: I picked up a big white jug, and I put the bunch of green leaves in the cup, like flowers. Suddenly the bunch of pandan leaves was standing like a star on the stage, brightening up my home.
