May I know how do you extract the pandan juice or is using pandan paste ok? If yes, how much paste should I use for the recipe above.

Thanks a lot :)

Pandan juice is extracted from fresh pandan leaves, it gives a natural fragrant to the tarts. You substitute with 1/2 tbsp of pandan paste if unavailable, but taste will be different from using pandan juice.

how to make pandan juice? Or where to buy?

Blend some (6-10) pandan leaves with some (approx.200ml) water. Sieve it into a container, leave it to set. Pour away the upper layer of water, the lower layer which is green in colour is pandan juice.
