If you’re looking for the authentic recipe for kaya jam, this is not the one. However, if you’re looking for the easiest and fastest way to make Malaysian favourite spread, you’re at the right place.
Much to my chagrin, traditional way to make kaya takes about two hours. I’m so glad to find a simple recipe from Kitchen Tigress which reduces the total cooking time down to 15 minutes. And only five ingredients are needed.
It cannot get easier than this!
- Saucepan + spatula
- Large bowl (to whisk egg and pour in coconut solution)
- Whisk/ chopsticks
- 45 g Palm sugar (gula melaka)
- 200 ml Coconut milk
- 4 pcs Pandan leaves, cut into 2 inches strips
- 4 Egg yolks
- 3 tbsp Sugar
