Susan Feniger's Coconut Kaya Jam (a pudding-like mixture of rich coconut milk; grassy, vanilla-like pandan leaves, sugar, and eggs) is familiar to anyone with a Top Chef addiction. Who could forget Gail Simmons' proclamation that she'd "love to be sticking [her] finger in [it] at all hours of the day"? In Street Food, Feniger pairs the jam with tempura-coated baby banana fritters, making for an addictively sweet and sticky dessert.
