Honeydew and Sago Pearls Dessert
My sister invited us for a dinner on Saturday.Erm...not nice to go with empty handed, right?So, I made this dessert ,and bring it along.I made it thick,without adding too much water, easy to carry over.This honeydew was so fragrance,I like it.This combination honeydew and coconut milk, is fantastic,and moreover when it's chilled....If you want to try the recipe, and in small family,cut down the recipe into half..
Here's the recipe:
4kg of honeydew
100 gm pearl sago
300 ml thick coconut milk, I used packet coconut milk.
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
3 pcs pandan leaves(screwpine leaves)
Remove and seeds of honey dew.Grated some honeydew ,so you can chew some honeydew flesh and some for garnishing.
Liquidise the remaining honey.Chill in the fridge.
Soak pearl sago for 1/2 hour.
Cook coconut milk with salt, until just boil,remove from heat.Set a side for cool.
Cook sugar and water with pandan leaves, till sugar dissolve.
Prepare a big bowl of drinking water.
Put pearl sago into a pot of boiling water,stir and cook till transparent (it'll float up).
Scoop up and drain the cooked sago and put it into the drinking water.
Leave it for about 3 minutes.Then, drain the water away.
Mix pearl sago,coconut mixture ,sugar syrup, liquidise honeydew,all into one big bowl.Add some grated honeydew too,save some for garnishing.Chill again in the fridge.
Dish into small bowl/cup and garnish with some grated honeydew.Serve.
