A Lovely , Easy And Cost Saving Dessert........

Sago Pudding ready to be served..............

Recently Son H had to plan out a menu for 20 pax using very limited amount of money for a project in college......and he ask me what he could prepare for dessert that do not take up a lot of time besides saving cost for his other dishes like starter and main course.....so this is what he made after surveying my ideas.......Sago Pudding with Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar).....


Ingredients:

(For Palm sugar syrup)

250 gm gula melaka
30 g sugar - (optional) if you like yr syrup sweeter.
250 ml water
2 to 3 screwpine (pandan) leaves

Method:

Place all the above ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil over low heat til sugar is dissolved. Strain and leave to cool in fridge.......


Chopped gula melaka...................


Cooking the palm syrup in a saucepan..............

Coconut milk - squeeze from 1 coconut with 300 ml water added or from ready packet ones.....(bring to just boil with a pinch of salt added and refrigerate before using)

200 gm Sago pearls
1 no.Egg white
A pinch of salt

Method:

Wash sago and drain. Put to boil in a pan of hot boiling water. Stir and cook til sago is transparent (about 10 mins). Pour into a large fine sieve and wash under running cold filter tap water to get rid of excess starch. Then stand sieve over a bowl to drain water off completely. Meanwhile whisk the egg white with the salt til stiff and fold into sago til well mix. Spoon the mixture into small tart moulds and leave in the fridge to chill. Can prepare the palm syrup before hand or after this. Serving is done individually by topping the sago pudding with palm syrup and coconut milk according to taste.

Looking at your sago pudding brings back fond childhood memories. My mum used to make sago pudding when we were young and we used to love them to bits. I can chomp down 2-3 cups at one go... with lots of santan and gula melaka. Yummy!

What a budget dessert! Great idea for parties. The combination of coconut milk and palm sugar sure go well with many desserts. :)
