8 tbsp green peas flour / hoen kwe flour
1 tbsp instant jelly powder
800ml coconut milk {squeezed from 1½ coconuts}
170 sugar

Keep mixture hot by putting the pot in the pan of hot water to prevent it from setting too quickly.
To Assemble:

Scoop some pandan kaya to cover the cake and sides. Repeat the same way till the last layer is covered with pandan kaya.
