Abok Abok Sago  Recipe @

Abok Abok Sago is a traditional Asian dessert normally wrapped in banana leaf made with pearl sago, grated coconut and palm sugar.

This time this dessert is undergoing a makeover by adding 2 different color, one with green food coloring while other portion was orange (I got this after adding the orange colored sugar) and using small tart mould.

You can also make use of jelly mould and changing the color according to your choice. It's fun to see the transformation.

These Abok Abok Sago have  special  coconut aroma and slightly chewy texture

Serves   :   12

1 1/2 cup pearl sago
1 1/2 cup grated coconut (white part)
10 heaped tablespoon palm sugar chopped
green food coloring
1/2 tsp salt

Abok Abok Sago  Recipe @


Put sago in a strainer and rinse under running water to get rid of excess starch.  Drain well.

In a mixing bowl, combine sago, coconut and salt. Stir until well incorporated.

Divide sago mixture into 2.  One portion add green food coloring, the other mix with  palm sugar.

Boil  2 in depth  water in a steamer, heat the  tart mould.

Fill the bottom layer of the mould  with green sago, cover the green part  with  palm sugar portion. Press down firmly.

Steam for 15 minutes. Cool before removing them from the mould.
