Kaya toast - coconut jam and butter sandwich

Kaya is a jam flavored by pandan leaf and sweetened with sugar, made from coconut milk and chicken eggs. The spread originated in Southeast Asia, most likely Indonesia or Malaysia.

Kaya is sweet and creamy, available as a golden brown or green colored spread depending on the amount of pandan and extent of caramelization of the sugar. As with other jams, kaya is typically spread on toast and eaten in the morning or for tea breaks. This toast, also known as kaya toast where essentially kaya and usually butter are spread on two pieces of preferably toasted bread, has gradually made its way as a popular snack in Singapore and some parts of Malaysia.

There is just everything, only missing that coffee, not just any Starbucks-type coffee but those aromatic corn-roasted coffee!
