Make this delicious sweet pudding from sago or sabudana.

In India it’s called sabudana kheer and is made by cooking together sago in water or milk, sweetened by sugar. However,  worldwide the styles, ingredients, and presentation may differ.

Sago and Chia seeds Pudding

Sago pudding or sabudana kheer was something that we avoided as kids and even now I was reluctant to make it. Reason being sabudana kheer and rava/sooji kheer was fed when you were not well. Some associations are very hard to shake off.

The first time I tried to shake off my association with sickbed food association was when I made this bottle gourd kheer.

The other names it is called by are the Malaysian Sago Gula Melaka where sago is boiled in water and served with a syrup of palm sugar (gula Melaka) and coconut milk.

In the UK, sago pudding or frog spawn is made by boiling pearl sago and sugar in milk until the sago becomes translucent. It is then thickened with eggs or cornflour.

The puddings that I have tried in the past are Malva PuddingSelf Saucing Chocolate PuddingBaked Bread PuddingBanana and Burnt Butter PuddingThai Coconut Pudding/CustardAgar Agar PuddingTrifle PuddingRagi Pudding or Nachni-che-SatvCoffee Chocolate PuddingBread Pudding, Kheer. Do check out my Corn Pudding too which I tried out in the series  Are you Pudding me?

My recipe is adapted from here. The pudding is Indian Style initially  but I thickened it and since I love Malaysian Cuisine, Malaysian Sambal Sauce, Nasi Lamak I had to try the Gul Melaka.

Instructions
  1. Rinse and soak the sago in 1 cup of water. (This cuts your cooking time).
  2. Rinse and soak the sago in 1 cup of water. (This cuts your cooking time). Soak the chia seeds too. Say 20-30 minutes.
  3. Cook in deep pan on low flame stirring regularly.
  4. Add water if the sago starts sticking to the bottom of the pan. Cook until the sago becomes translucent, I needed 3 cups of water.
  5. Add the sugar and milk cook for a few minutes until the sugar dissolves.
  6. Mix well and transfer to greased moulds. Refrigerate overnight.
For the topping:
  1. In a small pan mix the jaggery and water.
  2. Bring to a boil, and cook until the jaggery has dissolved.
  3. Strain through a fine sieve to remove any impurities.
  4. Unmold the puddings, and serve with the coconut milk and palm sugar syrup (gula melaka) separately for each person to pour over their serving.
