Auria’s Malaysian Kitchen
Pandan Kaya is a luscious, coconut-based spread that originates from the heart of Malaysian breakfast culture, where it is a beloved staple in any kopitiam (Malaysian coffee shop). Kaya is crafted with a blend of premium coconut milk, eggs, and sugar, and gains its unique flavor and vibrant green hue from the tropical Pandan leaf.
The Kaya from Auria’s Malaysian Kitchen is slow-cooked using traditional methods, resulting in a sumptuous and aromatic spread that elevates a variety of sweet treats. Kaya pairs beautifully with buttered toast, or try drizzle some kaya over ice cream, or add it to parfaits with yogurt, granola, and berries. Kaya even finds its way into cakes, pastries, and crepes, making it a cherished addition to countless culinary creations.
Ingredients: Coconut Milk, Eggs, Cane Sugar, Pandan Leaves, Kosher Salt
Auria hails from the quaint town of Seremban, Malaysia, steeped in the rich culinary tapestry of her homeland. Raised in a diverse cultural milieu, she learned the art of crafting sumptuous curries, delectable noodle dishes, and exquisite meat and seafood creations, influenced by Malay, Chinese, and Indian flavors, all under her mother’s tutelage.
Her culinary journey took her to Berklee College of Music in the early ’90s, where she continued her studies. Within the college dorms, she became known for her authentic Malaysian meals, though she learned to dial down the heat to spare her friends’ palates.
In 2011, Auria started an underground supper club, impressing guests with dishes like Beef Rendang and Chili Soft Shell Crab. Word spread, and she soon transitioned to pop-up markets, food festivals, and street fairs, drawing long queues of eager customers, notably at Bryant Park’s Malaysian Winter Market in 2012.
In 2013, Auria launched Auria’s Malaysian Kitchen, beginning with the popular Hot Chilli Sambal, aiming to introduce the diverse flavors of Malaysia to American kitchens. Her mission: empower home cooks with a taste for adventure to savor the authentic essence of Malaysian cuisine, ensuring its enduring legacy.
