Notes

Choose pandan leaves that are of the broad type for easier wrapping.

It is important to let the gluten pieces absorb all the curry spices flavour, so its best to marinate overnight.

There are two ways to wrap. Fold the pandan leaves to form a pocket to hold the meat or simply roll the meat inside the leaf and secure with a toothpick.
