It turned out slightly too much green (but I likey) and slightly curdled coz I left the pot for only 5 minutes. 5 Minutes!!! Geram (frustrated). Abit too sweet too, think I should reduce the sugar even more..
Anyway, it makes really simple gifts if you're thinking of doing something different for a change :)

- 1 cup of eggs (3-4 large eggs)
- 1 cup of normal white sugar
- 1 cup of thick coconut milk
- 3-4 pandan leaves (I used pandan paste)
- Beat the eggs and sugar together with a whisk, mix in the coconut milk.
- Next, fill the base unit of a double boiler with water and bring to a boil. (you can cook it directly off the stove but keep it at very low heat to avoid burning on the base).
- Add mixture into the top unit of the double boiler, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches into a smooth consistency.
- This will take around 30 to 60 mins. Alternatively, if the paste is ready when the mixture coats the back of the spoon (check Pickle&SpicesWorld's page for the pic)
- Cool and bottle up.
- The kaya can be kept well up to two weeks in fridge, and 2 months if it's sealed tight in a bottle.
