How to make a Buko Pandan Salad

I am not a good cook and I don’t know how to bake, so the only thing I could do if there are family gatherings or special occasions is to eat. But last July, during my birthday, we (me and my bf) tried to do something different, something that we have not done yet, that is to make a Buko Pandan Salad.

The number 1 ingredient : GULAMAN. I am sorry I forgot to take a picture of the Buko. Two sachet of Magic Jelly or Mr. Gulaman is enough for more than 10 people already. And I have realized that it is cheaper to prepare a Buko Pandan Salad than a fruit salad.

You need to gradually mix the Magic Jelly powder to 8 cups of water, after mixing you need to cook it and stir it. When it comes to a near boil, it is ready to be poured to the square pans in order to let it cool, if you are in a hurry, you can put it into the refrigerator.

If it is cold and became a jelly already, you cut it in perfect squares (okay, you cannot do that, it keeps on slipping). So, after cutting the jelly, it should look like this:

You just add at least 10 fresh Buko’s and mix it with Cream and Condense Milk, and voila :

Your very own, Buko Pandan Salad.

  1. I like buko pandan too. Aside from your ingredients, i also put some whole kernel corn and grated cheddar cheese.

    But anyhow, your version is the classic buko pandan!

    Btw, visiting you from your adgitize ad

  2. now you gave me an idea, I was thinking of what to bring for the potluck in our family reunion, yes it’s cheaper than buko/fruit salad, because I will be feeding about a hundred mouths, not counting those who will come back at the table. lol
