Kewra water is an extract that is distilled from pandanus flowers. It is a transparent liquid, almost similar to rose water. It is prepared by a steam distillation process of the pandanus flowers, which yields a sweet-smelling essential oil that is further diluted into a thin liquid. It holds a lovely odour similar to that of rose water, but with subtle fruity notes, due to terpenoid and ether elements. It is used in desserts and some savory dishes in both India as well as Southeast Asia.
