Sago Pudding with Gula Melaka

I saw a picture of this dessert from irenechin's blog and wanted to try it at once. It looked so inviting and refreshing. A very simple and easy dessert to make as it only involves boiling the sago and putting it into moulds.

sago pudding
1. I used the bigger sago which took a longer boiling time(20-25 minutes) before it became completely transparent.
2. If using the small sago, it should only take 10 minutes of boiling.
3. As I am cholestrol conscious, I did not serve mine with coconut milk. It was just as delicious.
4. Instead of boiling the gula melaka over a stove, the microwave can be used.
