Sago Ruby With Grated Coconut

Do you like sago desserts?  Oh..... there's another name for sago....tapioca pearl.   I remember there was a time when I was in overseas, I asked the shop assistant for sago, and they don't know what I am talking about.  Lucky there was another customer overheard me and told the shop assistant.... "tapioca pearl".   

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.
