Kaya toast video (scroll down for recipe)
I met Lynn Chen recently (you might recognize her from the film Saving Face or from Law and Order: SVU which is one of my favorite shows even though it gives me the heeby-jeebies) and as it turns out, we have more in commonthan that just laughing really really loud. We also both love delicious food. (You can read about our lunch together here on her blog, TheActorsDiet).
When I asked if she’d like to be a guest on my show, she was super excited about sharing her version of kaya toast, a Southeast Asian snack I’d never heard of. Fortunately for you and me and everyone around us, kaya toast is super easy to make at home as long as you have the kaya jam. You can make it, and there are several recipes online, but you can also buy it through Amazon Srikaya Jam (Pandan Taste) – 8.8oz [Pack of 3] (affiliate link).
