Abok Abok Sago II

71 comments

This is the second time I posted this Abok Abok Sago recipe. The first time I made was using green sago which gave a nice crystal green colour (here). The flavour was not as fragrant as this one here, because I used gula melaka in this recipe. Both texture are the same, soft and chewy. It was well received when I brought this yummy snack to a kid's birthday party two weeks ago.


Abok Abok Sago
    Ingredients:
              300g White sago
              280g Gula melaka (palm sugar), chop to pieces
              3 pcs Pandan leaves
              80g    Water
              250g  White grated coconut
             1/8 tsp Salt


               Method:
  • Rinse and soak white sago in water for 30 minutes, drain well.
  • Boil gula melaka, pandan leaves and water together till gula melaka dissolved as sugar syrup and pass through a sieve.
  • Mix white sago and sugar syrup together, stir well.
  • Pour into a 8 inches square tin (grease tin with oil) and steam for 30 minutes and leave to cool.
  • Steam white coconut with 1/8 tsp salt for 10 minutes.
  • Cut cooked gula melaka sago with a knife or plastic cutter (grease with little oil) into small pieces and coat with white grated coconut and serve.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  24. Looks really delicious, Ann! I have not eaten this in a long, long time. Sago is not found here in the US and tapioca pearls don't work as well. They tend to melt. Thanks for sharing this treat at Tea Tattle Thursday.

  26. They look so yummy! When I saw the photo I clicked and was sure I was going to make this recipe on the weekend, but alas... I don't even know what sago means :-(. I just looked it up on Wikipedia and looks like it's a kind of starchy palm. I probably can't find it here. Oh well... Do you do international shipments of your baked goodies? ;-)

  39. this abok sago is a traditional food from Ambon, Maluku - Indonesia and the real named of that sago is Ongol-Ongol (not abok sago) also if u really want the real taste use coconut sugar not palm sugar, use santan not water. more delicious

    i will post the real ingredient of this ongol-ongol soon at Asian Food Channel Timeline for more information
