Kaya Ice-Cream Anyone?
It might sound strange, but try using kaya (chill it in the fridge first) as a flavouring for home-made ice-cream. an easy way is to use vanilla ice-cream as base, then fold the kaya into it for a fragrant icy treat.
You can also use kaya as a dip for snacks, from toast sticks, corn chips and potato wedges to even local snacks like pappadums, muruku and rice crackers.
We normally take cereal with milk for breakfast, but how about trying something new by pairing it with kaya? Try mixing a bowl of cereal with a half cup of kaya for a delicious morning treat.
Try adding or replacing condiments like blueberry jam on pancakes, and butter cream on crackers, with kaya for a new taste experience.
If you’ve never tried it before, kaya goes really well with a lot of french pastries like croissants, eclairs and mille-feuilles. Try it out as a spread or filling for these baked goods, besides having it with your usual toast.
Making your own waffles or pancakes at home? mix kaya into the batter for a fragrant coconut egg jam taste, and take your homemade treats to the next level.
Whether you’re baking cheese cake or a chocolate fondant cake, try mixing kaya into your recipes – you never know what interesting and delicious creations will come out of it!
