  1. Beat the eggs in a mixer. Add the milk, brown sugar, cardamom and cloves to the beaten eggs. Mix well. Add the mixture into a pot and steam for 20 minutes. Add the cashews.

  • One can also vary or enhance the aroma and flavour by adding thick pandan (Pandanus amaryllifolius) juice or vanilla pod gratings.
