Last night, i made this dessert after dinner. I was craving for honeydew & sago but the honeydew found in the local supermarket is too expensive and i got another substitute.. Rockmelon! Close enough, isn't it..
It is pretty easy to make and you can whipped this up in less than 10 mins for those who do not live near any S'porean or M'sian restaurants..
- some chopped cubes of rockmelon/ honeydew
- rock sugar, 2 big rocks
- pandan leaves, knotted
- evaporated milk
- to make the sugar syrup, boil 3 cups of water with rock sugar & pandan leaves till all the sugars dissolve, and set aside to cool, preferably in the fridge.
- to cook the sago, boil in water and constantly stirring till sago swells and turn semi translucent and soft. ( some people prefer complete translucent sago) to prevent the sago from clumping up.
- Strain sago after cooking and add it to the sugar syrup, add cubed honeydew and evaporated milk and mixed
- Enjoy it chilled
p.s: add sugar or evaporated milk according to taste..
