Kaya is a type of thick, fragrant jam made of sugar, coconut milk, egg and pandan. It is served as the spread on golden-brown toast. Sometimes, a generous slice of butter or margarine is sandwiched between to add a mixture of saltiness. The bread is traditionally toasted over charcoal to give a crunchy and crispy, thin texture. A common way of consumption is to dip the toast into soft-boiled eggs stirred with dark soya sauce and white pepper. Kaya toast is usually accompanied with a cup of tea or coffee.
