Sago is very popular in Asian countries. We do it in different ways. Sago in coconut milk is very nice. It soothes your body. So simple to make. With lots of coconut milk  makes it very creamier in taste. If you can use the freshly squeezed coconut milk it tastes much better than caned milk. Canned coconut milk has a different flavour when compare to the fresh coconut milk.Some times I use coconut milk powder. Its still better than the ones in cans.

We always wash sago several times. After ad water to soak the sago. This process makes the coking easier. It absorbs all the water and plumps up.

Instead of brown sugar Sri Lankans add palm treacle in to it to get more taste. Then it looks nice and colourful. you can add maple syrup, Manuka honey or bees honey instead.

when we had sore throat or pimples my mum used to cook this with coconut milk to cools down our bodies. We loved the sago always. I like hot sago than the chilled. I feel when you chill the sago you get less flavour than the hot dessert.

This recipe is completely vegan and vegetarian too. If you don’t like coconut milk add almond or rice milk  instead.

if you like to serve sago as a dessert add a bit more coconut milk and make it thinner. Its very  common to see street vendors selling sago drinks in busy streets of Sri Lanka.

I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called ” Mary” who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management.<br /> My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel “The Culinary Corner”<br /> I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self.<br /> As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.</p>
