Watermelon Sago

Guess again if you think this is Rockmelon Sago dessert commonly found in Chinese restaurants' dessert menu. It sure looks deceivingly similar. 

It's actually Watermelon Sago dessert. Like the Rockmelon Sago dessert, this is an equally cooling and refreshing treat! 

I had intended to buy a red watermelon but did not realise I had taken mistakenly chosen a yellow watermelon. Red or yellow watermelon, either would be fine. :)

This dessert is very easy to put together. You just need a few ingredients: watermelon meat, condensed milk, coconut cream, water and cooked sago. 

Watermelon Sago
serves 3

1/4 watermelon + a bowl of watermelon cut into small cubes
1/4 cup sago
1/2 cup water
2 tbspn condensed milk (to taste)
70 ml coconut cream

1. In a pot of boiling water, add in sago and cook for about 10 minutes till sago turns semi-translucent (almost translucent with white dot in the center), making sure to give it a stir once in a while so that they will not stick together. Remove from heat and let the sago sit for ten minutes until the sago is clear and translucent.
2. Drain the sago and run through cold water in a strainer. Set aside.

3. Cut the watermelon. Remove the skin and seeds.

4. Cut 1/4 of the watermelon into smaller chunks and put in to a blender. Add in condensed milk, coconut cream and water. Give it a good blitz until well blended. 

5. In a container, pour the blended watermelon mixture, cooked sago and watermelon cubes. 

6. Chill in refrigerator for 3-4 hours until dessert is cold.

7. Serve chilled.
