Sago Pudding with Mango Puree

I wanted to do Sago with Gula Malaka but I couldn't find the essential Gula Malaka, so I substitute it with Mango instead. As you can see, I didn't do a good job cooking the sago. Still have bits of white dots here and there. Hai ya! The results of being impatient! I'll be better with my Gula Malaka version!

  • 50g Small Sago (makes about 3)
  • 1 Mango, skinned and stoned

How to do it:
  1. Wash sago and drain.
  2. In a pot, boil about a litre of water.
  3. Add in sago gradually. Stir occasionally to prevent the sago from sticking together.
  4. When the water starts to boil, turn down the fire.
  5. Continue to stir occasionally.
  6. It's done when all sago turn translucent. (obviously mine's not quite done)
  7. Drain the sago using a sieve.
  8. Run the sago in water to clear the starch or you can use a pot of water.
  9. Drain the sago again using a sieve.
  10. Put the sago into moulds.
  11. Refrigerate overnight.
  12. Blend 2/3 mango till it become puree. If your mango is sour, you can add some fine sugar to blend together.
  13. Chop the remaining into cubes.
  14. Refrigerate.
  15. Remove sago pudding from mould using toothpick or knife.
  16. Pour the mango puree over the sago pudding and top with chopped mango.
  17. Serve.
