Sago Ruby With Grated Coconut
150g Sago (washed and drained)
6 tbsp sugar
1 ½ cups water
2 pcs pandan leaves (knotted together)
Few drops of red food colouring
½ piece grated young coconut
1/8 tsp salt
Mix the ingredients B together and steam over medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
In a medium saucepan, bring sugar, water and pandan leaves together to a boil until sugar dissolves. Add in sago and red food colouring, stir constantly until parboiled, and turn off heat.
Pour parboiled sago into a preheated 8” round steaming tray. Steam over low heat for 15 minutes and set aside to cool. Using your small spoon, scoop out a spoonful of the sago and roll it all over to coat with the grated coconut.
