    Caramel Essence is hard to find.

      I am sure you can use any other essence of your choice.

        Have you heard of “Pandan ” essence ? You can find it at Asian stores, especially Filipino stores. Filipinos love Pandan essence.

          Not familiar with it, but will check it out next time I pass a Filipino store. What does it taste like, or what’s the equivalent

            The taste is very subtle, actually. I can’t describe it. I think Filipinos put a pandan leaf in the rice. The aroma smells nice while the rice is cooking.
