After looking at all the kaya, really tempt me into making my own kaya.

Will try it soon since my current bottle of kaya from Prima is finishing.

Hopefully can succeed Embarassed

I have done my Kaya today. (sori, no pic as my bro has borrowed my camera).

I used 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 cup of eggs n 1 cup of sugar. I whisk d eggs n sugar together. Blend abt 14 pcs pandan leave together with all the coconut milk n sieve it. Put in d slow cooker n keep stiring every 15 mins. The end results was really lumpy. I used a blender to smooth it after that. My dh found that d smell was too strong but taste was great. My gers love it. Very Happy

Some questions for d experts:
How do i know if the mixture is ready?
My small slow cooker do not hv the setting, only on or off d power. The mixture was lumpy in less than an hour but I cook for 2 hrs den blend it, i found that it taste abit funny so i cook again for another hour +. Then blend it again. Embarassed After that, the taste was great. But i only have half a bottle of Kaya left :(

Why is the smell so strong? Did I put too much pandan leave?

Did i do it correctly? Oh ya, the colour of my Kaya is dark green. Smile

I did it again. This time, i didnt use the slow cooker n didnt blend the pandan leave. I used 3 pcs of pandan leave n boil together. I didnt blend it after cooked. I just keep stiring every 5 mins.

Here is the pic. Really nice n smell not so strong. Very Happy

tthksy, Thanks very much for the recipe Smile

I tweak the ingredients slightly for easy reference :
200ml Ayam Brand Coconut Milk
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 medium eggs
Pandan leaves tied to a knot
[Yield one tub]

I use a slow cooker and took about 2 1/2 hrs before it is set. I stirred occasionally so there isn't lumps.

I have cooked Kaya over the stove before but it always turn out in caramel color. Not sure if it's over slow cooker but it turn out in green color.

The next time I will want to reduce the no. of eggs cos this has a slight tinge of eggy taste.

I made this kaya twice in a slow cooker and both attempts were successful! Thanks for this super easy and yummy recipe. Even novice cooks can try this without fear of failure. No more store bought kaya for me!

For those who are using the breadmaker. do you put the pandan leaves into the inner pot or do you have to blend it first, then sieve to get the juice before you put it into the breadmaker?

thanks!!

I blend the leaves with the coconut milk, squeeze out and discard the leaves..then mixed with the rest of the ingredients. Wink

I have been trying to use the stove method to make kaya for the past two days but still come out lumpy. I heard from the experienced ppl that it shouldn't be that way. I do not want to use the blending method. Anyone could help? Do you start stirring the minute u put the mixture into the double boiler?

HelloKitty,

The cups mentioned here are standard measuring cups. If you don't have them, don't worry. Just use normal cup or bowl. Just make sure that you use the same cup/bowl to measure all the ingredients.
