Kenchoe or Kencur leaf (malay = Daun Kenchoe)

Description of Daun Kenchoe

The leaf from this plant is subject to a lot of confusion due to lack of a common English name. It is referred to as Zedoary by some, although it is actually the Curcuma zedoaria plant.
The white or yellowish camphor-scented rhizome is pounded amd used most commonly in Thai and Balinese dishes.
The young Kenchoe leaves (known as puchot kenchoe in Malay), are used finely shredded in Nasi Ulam.
