Breakfast cravings for Singapore food

Kaya Roti / Teh Si
Originally uploaded by seraphim1970.

It is 8am in New York and I am craving for a hot cup of teh-si kosong (tea with evaporated milk without sugar) and some toasted butter+kaya (coconut egg jam) roti (bread)!!!! Knowing myself, I would even gobble up some other breakfast goodies e.g kuehs found in the Singapore koti tiams (neighborhood coffeeshop).

More details: Made from eggs, coconut milk, sugar and pandan leaves for that unmistakeable fragrance, Kaya can come green in color if you prefer the pandan flavor and fragrance. It can also come brown in color if you prefer the flavor and fragrance of palm sugar or gula melaka. Kaya is great on toast with tea or coffee. It can be especially tantalizing with a couple of runny eggs.
