After blending, in fact the consistency is just nice and could not decide whether to heat it up again or not. Further heating, would make the kaya thicker and harder upon cooling. I am not too sure whether coconut milk can be added without cooking as this is not going to be consumed within a day. So in the end, I just did a quick 1 minute heating up. In the future, maybe, I should have heat up the coconut milk first.
