As much as the British favours beans on toast, Malaysians favours kaya. So popular is kaya, if you were to ask any passers-by in Malaysia and there will be no lack of definition what constitute a good kaya or how it should be eaten.
Kaya consists of eggs, sugar, coconut milk and flavoured with pandanus leaves. It is not a complicated dish to prepare, but does require a fair bit of patience. This dish is typically consumed with a cup of tea or coffee.
- 12 Eggs
- 500g sugar
- 6 pandanus leaves (knotted)
- 500 ml coconut milk
- Start by gently beating all your eggs and sugar together. Try to avoid creating any foam or this will affect the texture of your jam
- Using a double boiler add beaten eggs, pandanus leaves and coconut milk into the mix
- Now here’s the difficult part, you will have to keep stirring the mix until it reaches a smooth and fairly thick consistency. This process can take anywhere from 1 – 2 hrs.
- Allow the kaya to cool then bottle them up.
- Goes well with bread, scones or just a giant scoop on its on.

- Pandan Pannacotta with Coconut Jelly One of my most favourite desserts is the Pannacotta. This silky and creamy Italian dessert is often found in restaurants during summer as it is served cold and usually has a contrasting flavour to give it a little bit of ooomph! Summer berries are most common, sometimes served fresh, made into...
- Nasi Lemak The infamous Nasi Lemak. Some would claim it to be the national dish of Malaysia. I would have Nasi Lemak almost every week. Commonly found on road sides (in my opinion these are the best) they are also sold in Mamak stalls throughout Malaysia. These days, it’s pretty hard...
- Pandan Peanut Scones So to highlight the use of Mr Pandan leaf in a fusion dish, I have used one of my most favourite recipes, the humble scone and added pandan extract and crushed peanuts.
