Abok Abok Sago/Tapioca Pearls with Palm Sugar - Day 14


I wanted to make this kuih for the longest time but never get to do it. I always think they are very difficult to make because I have to use the banana leaves to make it into a cone casing and it is a daunting task as I’ve done that before for the Kuih Koci. Fear no more. Now I have these cone shape jelly moulds to use and they are just perfect for this kuih. The shape came out nicely.

This kuih is one of the easiest kuih to make actually. With just a few ingredients you will have perfect kuih for your afternoon tea.




Ingredients:

100 gram white pearl sago
100 gram green pearl sago
150 gram fresh grated coconut
180 gram palm sugar – finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
Some banana leaves


1. Lightly wash the sago in cold water. Soak it in water for half an hour. Drain well.
2. Mix salt and grated coconut. Divide the coconut into half and add it into the white and green sago. Mix well.
3. Line the jelly moulds with banana leaves. Brush it lightly with some vegetable oil.
4. Scoop about 1 ½ tbsp of the white sago mixture into the mould. Top it with some palm sugar and cover the palm sugar with 2 tbsp of the green sago mixture.
5. Steam it over high heat for 20 minutes or until cooked. Do the same to the rest of the sago.

I've always thought these Malaysian cakes were difficult to make, like some secret and complicated nyonya recipes passed down from generations! :)

When I soaked the sago and all of them broken and I got white colored water instead !! That's why I wonder why everyone kept asking us to soak it for 20 to 30 mins !!

I wonder why your sago still that green after cooking as I bought a pk from Thailand and after cooking all became pale colour !!

I will try your recipe when I buy the sago but will add in fresh pandan juice and some green coloring. Yours are gorgeous !! Thank you for sharing the recipe !!

I learn from Good Idea TW program to make the cone yourself is by cutting the used milk or juice paper carton and fold into a cone and use a paper staples to secure the shape.

Hi Gert,

Where did you get the jelly molds? Does it sell at Walmart or amazon?

Thanks.
Joyce

ICook4Fun said...

Rebecca, I usually will wash it, and soak it. I too got the sago from Thailand. You can always put a drop of green coloring to it.

Joyce, please refer here on where to get the molds.
