Kewra water

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.
