Kaya Made easy - micro wave oven in less than 15 minutes














Traditionally, making kaya need about 1- 2 hours of steaming in a double boiler. I decided to make some kaya using a microwave instead. I read about using this method but have not actually tried it until today.


3 large eggs (lightly beaten)
250g caster sugar
Add sugar into beaten eggs,
Use a hand whisk to stir mixture until sugar dissolves


350ml coconut milk
2 tsp Pandan paste.
Few drops of brown coloring to enhance a darker green color

1) Measure out your sugar and put it into a micro wave mixing bowl
2) Put eggs into the mixing bowl with the sugar and use a whisk to mix them up
3) Add in coconut milk and mix well.
4) Tie a knot into your pandan leaf and add that into the mixing bowl.
5) Put the mix into the microwave, and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
6) After 2 minutes, take it out of the microwave and mix it up with the whisk. The mixture will rise up but as you mix it it settles back down. Then put it back in the microwave and for another 2 minutes and repeat this.
7) Then reduce it to 1 minute, and do this about 4 times until you get the right consistency. The kaya will thicken upon cooling.
