    This is another new dish for me! I have never heard of tuhau. What is it exactly? From the picture it looks like serai, but I do not think that it is! Very interesting!

    Hi, thanks for stop by.
    Actually, tuhau included in the same family with ginger, turmeric and bunga kantan. Its appearance is more similar to the bunga kantan tree. If tuhau grow side by side with the bunga kantan tree, it would definitely confusing. But it can be distinguished by its smell and unlike bunga kantan tree, tuhau did not produce flowers.

But actually, when it's mixed in any type of cooking, it’s amazingly will provide rich flavor into the food and the strong smell will turn into mildly sweetly aroma. If you are a fan of tuhau, you should try this new recipe...
