made 10mins kaya coconut jam on 7.7.2020. ^^👍👍👍
traditional way of making coconut jam can take 3 hours, not something i want to try.
but quite a while back (2014) i chance upon a 10mins kaya recipe. and it was good enough for me.
the kaya was lovely, very fragrant, flavourful from the coconut milk & palm sugar & pandan leaves, very smooth and thick/intense enough.
just like the real thing at coffeshops.
all my friends loved it even after a full lunch.
just simple french loaf, butter and kaya was good enough for a great fun time.
