Mango & Coconut Sago

Updated: Apr 6


Mango & Coconut Sago

Oh tropical ! Mango season do not come often enough here in Australia, a fruit that brings just too much childhood memory for me. In Malaysia, they come in much smaller sizes and you can pretty much see them used in everything, well most things.


My dad and I were the only family member that would go crazy for the fruit, when they are sweet. Then, you have the sour ones that my mother would love so much. Believe it or not, we dip them in this spicy dip that till this day I still have not found out what they are made of. If you are from southeast asia and has an idea what I am talking about, please do share what you know about them!


Mango coconut sago is another dessert that just go so well. My first experience with this dessert is from Hong Kong, where my mother-in-law resides, and I have been nothing short of missing home, as you may already have a sensed from all these writting about home.


Well, if you are so far away from home and misses the food there, the only thing you can possible satisfy it is by making them yourself. :)


This dessert is so easy to make, the only time consuming thing about the recipe is probably cooking out the sago, but once they are done, you have plenty to quence your thirst for it.
