Sorry for the disappearing act for the past few days. Been a little crazy! The good news is I'm on schedule for planned deadline.
How can anyone resists mangoes? Mangoes and Durians are my favourite fruit-not necessary eaten together of course. Maybe having a favorite fruit runs in the family. My mum, auntie, grandma and I love mangoes!
So anyway, it's the mango season in Australia now. One mango for AU$1. Really cheap, fat and sweet mangoes. On one of the warmer days, I decided to make a cool dessert; hence mango sago.
I love the way these little pearls look. Look at them shimmering and shining under the light. It's a cheap dessert as well. Certainly worth doing it at home rather than having it in Yum Cha (or Dim Sum) restaurants!
1 cup of sago
1 mango cut in cubes
4-6 teaspoons of sugar
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 pot of water + 1/2 pot of water
Boil water and add sago. Keep stirring till the sago becomes transparent. Drain and wash sago under cold water.
In the 2nd 1/2 pot of water, bring it to boil. Add sugar and stir till it dissolved. Lower the heat and add coconut milk. Add sago and mango. Add more sugar if required.
Cool and chill before serving.
You can also replace mango with honeydew, watermelon, peaches....etc!
