I'm not very good at cooking sago (tapioca pearls). The previous few attempts failed on me. I blame it on the sago itself. The sago I got was the largest size and everytime I boiled it, it just broken apart, not looking like pearls at all. But this time around, I decided to try the mini size sago to use in my Bobochacha and to make sago agar-agar.
The package didn't come with instruction but I remember Peony's make the sago pudding before, so I went to her blog to look up for the way to cook the sago. You can find her method here. As usual, I ended out pouring almost half of the package into my boiling water without knowing it will expand to so much. I intended to use it for my bobochacha but I ended out with so much sago that I used half of it to make this sago pudding. I made gula melaka with coconut syrup to accompany this yummy sago pudding. I used the rich coconut cream and thus my syrup became this milky brown color.
I didn't rinse this under cold running water and thus the pearls kind of stick together. Nevertheless, I can still feel the pearls when I bite into it instead of clump. This dessert is very easy to make and absolutely delicious. Do try it yourself ya! :)
Note: You can now buy Gula Melaka via MyTOA.
