Kewra, keora or kewda (Hindi: केवड़ा, Bengali: কেওড়া, Urdu: کیوڑہ) is an extract distilled from the flower of the Pandanus plant. It is primarily used to flavour North Indian and Pakistani sweets, and Bangladeshi and Pakistani meat dishes.
It is a transparent liquid, almost similar to rose water.
Although Pandanus trees grow almost everywhere in tropical Asia, kewra water is still mainly a Northern Indian flavouring that is not used anywhere else.
It is also used as a treatment for the skin.
