Sago Dessert

 sago-with-brown-sugar-syrup-and-coconut-milk


Time flies and another week just flew out of the window... and soon Eid Celebration will be at our door steps...  big grin
I have to start my cookies baking soon...



If one were to visit some hotels in Malaysia for their Ramadan (Fasting Month) Buffet Spread... one of the desserts that you are likely to find is Sago Pearls served with dark brown sugar syrup and coconut milk...

And that was where D had his first taste of this gorgeous dessert and has not forgotten about it eversince... it was like ~  love at first taste for him...love struck

With a packet of sago in hand... I asked him... and knowing what his answer would be ...
"Which would you prefer: Kuih Sago or Sago with dark brown sugar syrup and coconut milk...?"

Without a second to waste...I got his reply...



Enjoy this dessert either as it is or chilled for a couple of hours in the fridge.
Like D, you will craving for more winking...

  8. I love sagu gula melaka. Nak buat lah kejap lagi. Hari tu buat lopes so ada lebih lagi syrup gula melaka n 2 hari lepas buat rendang 'low-fat' so sekotak santan yg dah buka pun masih ada dlm fridge. Dessert yg paling sedap n rasa yang paling sedap.
