BBM

I just participated in another round of the food swap BBM (Blogging By Mail). This time it was hosted by Stephanie, and she did a great job! I got a package from Maria in Singapore, and it was full of Singapore treats:

Among the contents were tomato chutney poppadums (I ate those immediately), moon cakes, Paneer Butter Masala, some gelatin molds, and kaya, a sort of sweet spread commonly used on toast. I know nothing about the cuisine of Singapore (except for that ubiquitous Singapore Noodle dish that appears on Asian restaurant menus), so this package was not only delicious but informative, too!

    Yum! I don’t know much about Singapore food either…you must have so many interesting snacks around the house. =)

    hi, just got here from following some links!
    Try kaya and margarine on toast!
    Try the same on hot waffles – heaven!

    So glad you enjoyed your package! Lemme know how the kaya works out for you, may try some on waffles myself! :D

    mmmmm, kaya toast! that was my favorite when we were in singapore a couple months ago. i bought a jar for myself–should have bought more.
    i don’t know how those ladies do it but they slice regular slices of crustless toast in half (their bread slices are actually more rectangular than our regular squarish slices of bread) spread some kaya on one side and place a couple pats of cold butter on top of the spread. place other half of toast to make a sandwich, cut in half and then into triangles–does that make sense? drink with milk tea and it’s delicious! unless you don’t like butter…
