Mango & Sago Dessert

This is a cold dessert originally uses pomelos. I didn't have any so I substitute it with sago pearls instead. It is real good eaten chilled and a great dessert especially for mango lovers. I have to thank Jingle for sharing this wonderful recipe.


600gm mango (abt 2 honey mangoes or 1 big red/green skinned mango)
250ml mango juice (Peel Fresh)
125ml evaporated milk
3 tbsp sago pearls (original uses 300gm pomelo, split into small pieces)
250ml water
50gm sugar
1 tbsp cornflour/tapioca starch
1 tbsp water
extra 250ml water

1. Boil water and sugar till sugar dissolves
2. Mix cornflour/tapioca starch with 1 tbsp water and pour into the syrup and stir over low heat until mixture is smooth
3. Take syrup and cornflour mixture off the heat and leave it to cool
4. Cut the sides of the mango and cube them
5. Scrap the remaining mango and put in a bowl, add 250ml of water to blend, put aside
6. Add blended mango, cubed mango, mango juice and evaporated milk into the syrup solution (from 1) then stir
7. Add sago pearls and stir, if too thick, add abit of cooled boiled water
8. Chilled before serve

To prepare sago pearls
1. Soak sago pearls in water till they turned abit translucent
2. Boil the pearls with water till it turns totally translucent
3. Pour the cooked pearls into a sieve and wash it with tap water remove the starch and now it's ready to be used

Zu, what a coincidence. I have already bought a mango and waiting for it to ripen a bit to make this dessert. Also planned to use sago pearls, Jingle`s advice. It looks so tempting. Can`t wait to make it.

My 1st visit here.

Thanks for telling sago pearls have to be soaked in water till slightly translucent before boiling. I used to boil them till completely translucent but then pearls are really sticky and not chewy.
