The technical term for rampe leaves is ‘’Pandan Leaves’’, belonging to the Pandanaceae family. It is also called screw-pine. Pandan is a type of flowering plant. Rampe plants are splitted into male and female plants where the male plant blossoms hardly and the female plant blossoms even hardly thus the fruit or kernel are nearly unreal.
Hence the plants are multiplied by cutting the plant. They are like palm trees. It is a tropical plant. The leaves are thin long green leaves. The leaves can be used either fresh or dried. Rampe leaves give an exclusive savor and smell. The leaves are a vital savoring agent used to savor curries, rice, savories and sweet dishes. Sometimes the rampe leaves are grinded and filtered to take out their zest and hue for cakes and sweets to give a lovely flavor.
