How to make Kaya Spread

Kaya is Malaysia's favorite spread, usually serves at breakfast with toast.

Mix sugar and water in a pot, cook until brownish. Next, slowly pour in the coconut milk, and mix well. Off heat, let the mixture cool for awhile. Then, on slow heat, add egg yolks and pandan leaf and cook until boiled. Store kaya spread in refrigerator.

    This looks great AND easy... if I knew where to get Pandan leaf... worst case scenario, are there any substitutes?

    Wow I miss Kaya ... used to eat it when I was in Singapore a lot. Have to give this a try if I can find Pandan here in North Carolina (lol) *sighs*
