Mango Jello with Sago

I'm back for a while for an update. Had been a very busy 2014 for me so far.

With the school reopening for the new term, both kids are in the morning session. I get to do some exercise after sending them to school. No weight fats lost yet. What a bummer! :/  After that, it was busy busy time with spring cleaning for CNY. Then my mother was hospitalised on the 2nd day of CNY.

I visited her in the mornings while the kids were in school then rush back to prepare lunch as well as dinner; in between picking the kids up for after school classes. It didn't help that my husband was away on business trip. So please don't come telling me, life is easy as a SAHM. Trying being a daughter, mother, wife and maid (and sometimes father too) all at the same time.

Anyway, my mother has been discharged for more than 2 weeks. Life is pretty much back to normal. But I have grown too lazy to blog. :P Hopefully I will wake up my lazy bones and resume updating soon.  I will probably do back-dated posts first.  You can check out my Instagram to find out what I 'busy' with.

Meanwhile, here's a sweet treat for you for staying with me. ^_^  Have a good weekend!

  • 2 Mangoes, 1 1/2 puree and 1/2 diced
  • 250ml Mango Juice (I'm using Peel Fresh)
  • 2 tablespoon Gelatin Powder
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • 100ml Water
  • 50g Sago
  • Evaporated Milk to serve

How to do it:
  1. Rinse sago and drain.
  2. Add sago to about a litre of water.
  3. Bring it to a gentle simmer.
  4. Reduce heat and continue cooking.
  5. Stir frequently to prevent the sago from sticking together.
  6. If the water gets to starchy, drain it, add in more water and continue cooking till all the sago turns transparent.
  7. Pour into a sieve and run the sago in water till it's clear from the starchy residue.
  8. Drain and set aside.
  9. Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin powder on the water and set aside for it to bloom/expand.
  10. Warm 200ml mango juice with sugar (if using) but do not simmer or boil. Just hot enough for the sugar to melt.
  11. Add in half the mango puree and mix well.
  12. Add in the gelatin mixture and mix well.
  13. Pour into cups and chill to set.
  14. You can add some mango cubes to the mango mixture if you like.
  15. Mix the remaining puree with the remaining mango juice and set aside to chill.
  16. If you wish to un-mould the mango jello, just have a bowl of hot water ready.
  17. Sit the cup of mango jello in the hot water for a while; about 10 secs.
  18. Turn it over to a serving bowl to let it drop.
  19. To serve, pour over the additional mango puree, add some sago and some evaporated milk.

  • Fill the mango jello mixture to almost the rim of the cup if you wish to served it un-mould in a serving bowl.
  • The texture for this is melt in your mouth not the usual pudding texture.
  • Replace 100ml Mango Juice with 100ml Whipping Cream for a more milky taste to the jello.
