Coconut Custard (Kaya Jam)
« on: November 16, 2010, 08:36:47 pm »
Dear All,

I made some really lovely coconut custard (kaya jam) on the thermomix.  This is a traditional Malaysian/Singaporean/Filipino jam.  In Malaysia and Singapore they serve this with toast and a thick slab of butter.  So easy to make on the thermomix!
See my blog post for the recipe and more pictures:

Coconut Custard Jam
Recipe Adapted from Amy Beh

3 eggs
2 egg yolks
150 grams caster sugar
270 ml coconut milk (at least 80% coconut content
3 pandan (screwpine) leaves, tied in a knot

In a saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil and set aside. In a separate sauce pan heat the sugar (keep stirring) until it caramelizes into a rich brown colour. Once this happens immediately remove from the heat and pour the heated coconut milk onto the sugar. Be careful as there will be a lot of steam created.
Allow the sugar/coconut milk to cool to 45c. Place this along with the eggs and egg yolks in the thermomix bowl and mix on speed 4 for 15 seconds.
Add the pandan leaves and then attach the butterfly. Cook on reverse, stir speed at 80c for 65 minutes.

Trissalicious, the photos on your blog are awesome, is photography a hobby? The jam sounds interesting and I may give it a go the next time I have egg yolks to use up. We have a good number of eggs in the fridge at the moment courtesy of our two lovely hens.

Yum. I tried making kaya (with a different recipe) but found that i had to cook it for much longer than 65 minutes. Thanks for posting.

Trissa that looks delicious. Is your hubby enjoying all the egg yolk creations? ;D
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
