Asian – Sago – Chilled sago with red bean paste 8/10

Asian – Sago – Chilled sago with red bean paste 8/10

February 8 2009


• 250 g Plain sago 62g
• Water
• 60 g Sugar 15g
• 1.5 tbsp Vegetable oil 22ml 5.5ml
• 100 g Red Bean Paste
• 250克 西米
• 水
• 60克 白砂糖
• 1.5大勺 菜油
• 100克 红豆沙
• •

1. Soak the sago in the water for about 1 hour. Drain and add in sugar and oil, blend well.
2. Place in a steamer over the high heat to cook for 5 minutes. Stir constantly to prevent sticking.
3. Fill 6 greased moulds with the sago mixture each with 2 tablespoon of sago, then some red bean paste then place enough sago to cover the bean paste.
4. Return to steamer and steam for another 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool. Sago pudding appears to be translucent after cool down.

These were pretty good, but I couldn’t have them since they were practically indigestible. They tasted digestible but I know that they are not… It took a lot of effort for me to clean them off the bowl, though boiling water did the trick. I forgot to add oil, so maybe that’s why they were all stuck together in one huge mess. I did one without sugar and one with sugar, and the one with sugar was better. The cooking time is about right, but I would spread the sago thinner next time because I noticed that the ones on the bottom were a bit undone. When they are just out of the steamer, they were sticky and unpleasant, but after it cooled down, it tasted a bit like jello and chewy.
