Sago Gula Melaka

This is a very easy & delicious dessert/pudding.

  • 2.5 liter of water
  • 200g pearl sago, rinsed & drained
  • 250g gula melaka
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 big can of coconut milk (about 400ml)
  • a pinch of salt


Bring 2.5 liter of water to boil in a big pot. Gradually stir in the sago so that it does not clump. Return to a boil, reduce heat to low. Sook until the sago turns translucent, stirring occasionally for about 30 minutes. Drain the sago in a strainer and run over cold water to wash away the starch. Pour the sago into a mould or 4-5 individual mould & refrigerated overnight.

Break the gula melaka into small pieces. Put into a bowl & add in 1/3 cup of water. Put into the microwave for about 1-2 minutes each time until the gula melaka dissolved. Strain through a sieve to remove grit.

Pout the coconut milk into a bowl & add in a pich of salt. Put inthe microwave for 1 minutes.

Unmould the pudding, serve with coconut milk and the gula melaka syrup separately for each person to pur over their serving
