When I was young, I had my fair giới thiệu of peanut butter and jam sandwiches.

But luckily, my parents introduced me to foods that they grew up with, & thus, I became familiar with those tastes và flavours. One of those foods was kaya, also known as coconut jam/spread.

Rich, sweet, & delicious, I always knew kaya came from a tin can.

We lived in a small trắng town where access to lớn Asian foods, were impossible to lớn come by. The only way we would get cans of kaya was whenever my parents took a trip into Vancouver’s Chinatown.

What is kaya?

Kaya in the Malay language means “rich,” with reference to the texture of the coconut jam.

It is thick & custard-like, similar lớn a “khoya,” which may have been influenced from the Southern Indians trading with the Malays back in the day.

When I realized that the brightly orange-coloured kaya that came from the tin cans contained artificial colours and preservatives, I thought of how I could make it at home from real, whole ingredients.

Ingredients you’ll need

This Pandan Kaya Coconut Jam contains only 4 whole ingredients:

coconut milk: I find it’s best to use canned coconut milk rather than the coconut milk in the cartons. This is because it tends khổng lồ more pure (less additives) & much more richer in taste.whole eggs: large whole eggsgranulated sugar: if you wanted more coconut flavour, you can use coconut sugar, but beware that it will darken the kaya jam to lớn a brown colourpandan (screwpine) leaf: is an aromatic flavouring that is common in Southeast Asian cuisine. The pandan leaf has a grassy yet vanilla-like flavour. It’s used in my Pandan Cold Brew Coffee.

Note:

You can find pandan (screwpine) leaf usually frozen in Asian supermarkets.

If you don’t have access lớn pandan leaf, you may be able to find pandan extract which comes in a small tube or pandan leaf powder, which will work perfectly fine.

Nyonya, which is green in colour.Hainanese which is darker brown in colour and often sweetened with honey.In the Philippines, it is known as matamís sa báo, but does not contain eggs và is less thick in texture.In Thailand, it is known as sangkhaya.

The colour variation depends on the number of eggs, the caramelization of the sugar, and the amount of pandan leaf used.
