Recipe: Homemade Kaya

This is a simple way of making your own kaya at home, the only thing you need is so time as majority of the work is actually stirring the kaya during the cooking process.

Ingredients:

1. 10 eggs (6 whole plus 4 yolks)
2. 150g white sugar (depending on your liking but this is quite sweet to me already)
3. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
4. 400ml of thick coconut milk (I just use the supermarket one but fresh one would be nicer)
5. 6-8 pandan leaves (optional, if you fancy, otherwise replace with vanilla essence)

Methods:
1. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl
2. Add in sugar plus salt into the eggs mixture and whisk further till mixed well
3. Heat up the coconut milk till they are lukewarm
4. Mix the coconut milk into the eggs mixture and sift it
5. Heat up a pot with half water and bring them to a boil
6. Put a same size pot or wok or pan on top of the pot to cover it (so kaya don’t get burnt on direct heat)
7. Pour the mixture into the wok (I used a non-stick wok) and start stirring
8. Keep the fire low-mid, as long as the water is simmering then it’s ok
9. Keep stirring for the next 40-50 mins until the kaya becomes gluey and coats your spoon
10. Cool kaya to room temperature and store them the fridge to be kept longer

Very simple and nothing beats having a kaya sandwich with hot kaya in them, yummy!
