Valentines Day is here again. And I’ve made nothing fancy this year; though I had in mind a plan to have a Valentines Day Special Menu on the blog. Sorry folks, been neck deep in things that have kept me very busy.
For this year be content with this simple ‘Sago Pudding’. But remember that it is the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.
Happy Valentines Day to all our well wishers.
Recipe for Sago Pudding :
10 cups water
200g pearl sago, soaked, rinsed and drained
200g palm sugar (also known as gulamelaka), or jaggery melted in 1/2 cup water over medium heat.
2-1/2 cups coconut milk
Soak the sago pearls in water for 30 minutes. Drain over a sieve. Bring 10 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Gradually stir in the sago so that it does not clump. Return to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cook until the sago turns translucent, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Pour over a sieve, wash the pearls in cold running water till cold and drain again.
Warm the coconut milk and gulamelaka syrup and when thickish add the sago and simmer on low heat. Refrigerate in individual containers.
Garnish with nuts.
