ABUK ABUK SAGU

Photobucket

Simple and easy to make kuih of South East Asia. Traditionally it is wrapped with banana leaves and comes in a shape of a cone. Combining pearl sago, coconut (remove the brown skin) and palm sugar in a single recipe.

Anyway I have used muffin pan instead of banana leaves, do use them if available at your place.
For the quantity below you could get 10 pieces, enough for a small family to enjoy this yummy dessert of yesteryear.


INGREDIENTS

1 and 1/2 cups pearl sago
1 and 1/2 cups grated coconut
10 heaped tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

METHOD

* Boil 2 in depth water in a steamer. Grease and heat the muffin pan in the steamer.

* Wash sago with running water then drain.

* Combine together sago, coconut and salt in a mixing bowl, mix well. Sprinkle little water if it is too dry.

* Place 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of sago mixture onto the muffin pan, spread evenly.

* Now pour a heaped tablespoon brown sugar on top of sago mixture.

* Cover the brown sugar with another 1 and 1/2 tablespoon of sago mixture and level top.

* Steam for 15 minutes or until the sago turns translucent with medium heat.

* When completely cool, remove from the muffin pan to serve.
