What can I use as a substitute for pandan juice? I have absolutely no idea where to get pandan leaves in St. Louis, Missouri.

There appear to be several Asian markets in the St. Louis area that may be able to help you. Be cautious of pandan extract, as some artificially flavored. If you are at an Indian store, it is called kewra. You can order pandan essence or leaves on Amazon if you can't find it in your local area.


Otherwise, you could substitute vanilla extract. It won't be the same but it will still be delicious.
