Fruity sago pudding
- 2 cups reduced-fat milk
- ½ cup sago
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 cup mixed berries (or fruit of your choice)
- passionfruit pulp (optional)
1 Pour milk into a large microwaveable dish. Add sago and allow to soak for 1 hour.
2 Microwave sago on high for 4 minutes. Stir. Microwave sago on high for 4 more minutes.
Stir, then microwave sago on medium for 5 minutes. By now mixture should be thick, with glassy beads of sago showing through. If not, microwave again on medium for 1 minute at a time until cooked.
3 Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla together in a cup, then quickly stir it into hot sago mixture.
4 Microwave sago on medium for 2 minutes, then serve hot with berries, plus passionfruit pulp, if desired.
This pudding is delicious with any fruit you like, or with a tablespoon of jam.
Use oven gloves to remove the dish from the microwave each time it is stirred, as it will become hot as the sago cooks.
What is sago?: Sago is the starchy inside part of the trunk of a sago palm. The beads are produced by separating the starch from other parts of the plant, then forming this extract into a dough. The dough is then forced through a sieve before being heated at high temperatures. You can buy sago from the baking aisle at the supermarket.
