Step 1
Whisk the Eggs (4) in a medium stainless steel or ovenproof glass bowl.
Step 2
Add Coconut Milk (1 cup) , Pandan Leaves (1) (tied into a knot), 2 tablespoons of Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) and a pinch of Salt (1 pinch) to the egg yolks. (Set the additional 3 tablespoons of sugar aside)
Step 3
Fill a small saucepan with approximately 2 inches of water and bring it to a light boil over medium-high heat. Set the bowl with your kaya mixture over the saucepan. Whisk the kaya mixture frequently for 5 minutes.
Step 4
Use oven mitts to remove the bowl from the saucepan and set it aside. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Step 5
Pour the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small frying pan and set it over the medium-high heat. Allow the sugar to melt and caramelize. Use a heat-resistant silicone spatula to gently stir the caramel.
Step 6
As soon as the caramel turns into a nice golden brown color, add it to the kaya mixture.
Step 7
Place the bowl back on the saucepan, then place the saucepan over medium-low heat. Continue cooking the kaya for an additional 5 - 10 minutes, whisking frequently.
Step 8
Remove the pandan leaf and discard it. Allow the kaya to cool completely, then pour it into a medium-sized jar. Serve and enjoy!
