Step 1: Prepare pandan juice
• Place the pandan leaves and water into the chopper. Blend till fine.
• Pour it into a muslin bag. Squeeze out 80ml of pandan juice.
Step 2: Cook the kaya
• Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add in sugar. Using the Kenwood hand blender, attach the whisk to blend the sugar with egg.
• Pour the mixture into a small saucepan. Heat it over low heat, stir constantly using the spatula till the sugar has fully dissolved.
• Sieve the egg-sugar mixture, pandan juice and coconut milk into a bigger saucepan.
• In a frying pan, pour in 2l water. Place a tablecloth in the middle, submerge in the water. Place the saucepan with the kaya mixture on it. Turn on medium heat, stir the mixture continuously for about 25 mins till the mixture starts to thicken. Switch off the heat once it has reached your desired doneness.
Step 3: Blend the kaya and store
• Remove from heat. Use the Kenwood Triblade hand blender to smoothen the kaya.
• Optional: If you prefer a smoother texture, you may put on the whisk attachment and give it a final whip.
• Let it cool down and start it in the chiller for up to 2 weeks.
