Make sure the melted sugar is still in liquid form before you pour into the kaya.Ingredients for kaya
10 whole eggs
Sugar 500gms ( castor/ fine grain)
A tin of coconut cream ( 480 gms) - Thai brand
5 pcs of pandanus leaves( may use frozen ones)
Prepare a pot of boiling water 3/4 full.
Whisk eggs together with sugar in a wok for about 5 mins.
Pour the can of coconut milk into a stainless steel container n warm it in the boiling water for a few mins. Then leave aside.
Put the wok over the pot of boiling water making sure the wok is at least 2 inches above the boiling water. Continue to stir the sugar n eggs mixture.
Once the sugar is melted, slowly pour in the warmed coconut milk n continue to stir until it thickens. Once the kaya sticks to the spoon it is done. About 30 mins.
If you want the kaya to look more brown. Take 2 tablespoonful of sugar and melt it in a a small
pot till it becomes caramel. Pour this caramel into the kaya n stir till it is well combined.
