ABOUT Mango -Sago pudding RECIPE

Mango Sago Dessert is an Asian sweet that originates from Hong Kong. Made using the key ingredients -mango, sago & milk or coconut milk ... yesterday i managed to get few really fragrant "Pairi " mangoes ,so I thought I'd give it a try I didn't think there was a way to improve my favourite fruit, the mango,but damn this is so so good.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 3 Pulpy Mangoes
  2. 1/2 cup sago/ tapioca pearls
  3. 1/2 Liter Full fat Milk
  4. 1 cup Sugar
  5. 2 tsp Basil seeds,soaked in water and drained
  6. 1/2 cup Fresh cream ( optional)


  1. Peel the mangoes and cut into cubes. Reserve one quarter of the cubed mangoes for garnishing.
  2. In a blender, blend the rest of the mangoes and cream for a short while till well mixed.Add the sugar in if your mangoes aren't really sweet. In this pudding i have used Pairi variety mango which is quite famous in south india,which not only sweet but gives nice rich orange- yellowish color to my pudding.
  3. Wash and drain the sago. Place sago with 2 cups of water and sugar into a sauce pan ,cook the mixture on medium-high heat till bubbles appear. Stir occasionally. When mixture bubbles, reduce to medium-low heat and continue cooking till mixture becomes relatively translucent with few white dots (uncooked sago). The mixture is relatively sticky .Cook for about 20 - 25 minutes or till mixture becomes almost translucent. I took about 20 minutes for mine to be right. Do stir occasionally to prevent the mixture from burning.
  4. When sago is cooked, stir in warm milk. Cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Now add in 1/2 of the fresh mango puree and blend it well . then add in the rest of the mango puree. Stir well.
  6. Scoop into bowls or individual serving bowls and allow it to cool to room temperature before chilling it for another hour in the fridge. Top with cubed mango and some soaked and drained basil seeds before serving.
