People in Hong Kong always try to balance their meal. If you have something spicy then you should balance it with something cooling. This meant we would usually finish our meal with something cold and creamy, such as this delicious coconut cream sago. If you finish your meal with this sweet treat, it will leave you feeling refreshed and soothed. Sago is available from most supermarkets. Eat it simply like this or add fruit; cold melon is our preferred choice.
- In a bowl, put coconut cream and milk. Grate in palm sugar, stir to combine and set aside.
- Bring water to boil in saucepan. Add sago and simmer for 10 minutes or until sago starts to appear translucent.
- Drain sago and run cold water through sago in a sieve until sago is cold. Add sago to coconut mixture. Chill and serve topped with toasted coconut.
