Homemade Kaya (Coconut Jam)

I seldom buy kaya because most of the kaya sold either is too sweet or if the one that suits my taste would be too costly for a just a small jar.  So it is better to make my own to suit to my little less sweet taste.

Homemade Kaya (Coconut Jam)
Recipe source from AlmostBourdain with slight changes

4 eggs,  beaten and sieved
220g sugar
50ml pandan / screwpine water
(blend 5 pandan/screwpine leaves with 50 ml water in a blender and sieve the mixture)
250ml coconut milk, sieved

Put sugar and pandan water in a heavy-based pan and boil until sugar dissolved and caramelised.
Remove from heat and pour in coconut cream / milk and eggs.
Cook and stir constantly in low heat for 25-30 minutes until the mixture is smooth and thicken.
Remove from heat and leave to cool.

         Makes about 460g.....
