Honeydew Sago Dessert

This is a modified recipe which I came out with, after studying the one from Kuali and another recipe from M4M forum. Very yummy! Even my health conscious hubby couldn't resist, he had second helping. Thanks to the originator who invented such a wonderful dessert, though I don't know who, because there are so many Honeydew Sago Dessert recipes around.

Honeydew Sago Dessert

Serves 6

Honeydew melon ( approx 1kg)
120g sago
100ml coconut milk

Syrup Ingredients:
3-4 pandan leaves
150g gula melaka
150ml water


Remove the skin from the honeydew melon, halve then scoop out the seeds. Shape the honeydew melon into small round balls using a metal scoop. Puree the remaining honeydew melon. Chill in the fridge.

To prepare syrup, put water, gula melaka and pandan leaves in a saucepan. Boil until gula melaka dissolves. Strain and cool thoroughly.

Boil water in a pot. Add sago pearls to boil until transparent. Pour the cooked sago into a sieve then place under running tap water. Drain well.

Combine sago, chilled honeydew melon balls, puree and coconut milk in individual bowls. Add syrup to taste.

    different kind of texture, using gula melaka as the sweet base.

    very innovative.

    Jingle, I think gula melaka is a better choice for this recipe.

    Both recipes at Kuali and M4M called for castor sugar. The one at M4M pureed the whole melon and didn't run the cooked sago in cold water, which I dislike. Hence this fussy queen had to modify the recipe. *lol*

    hi Tazz,
    The picture of honeydew sago dessert looks so yummy. I am going to try it out. But can i know how do you puree the honeydew? The white balls in the dessert are they the scoped honeydew?

    Hi Wei, how to puree honeydew? haha.. just throw all into the blender, LAH! The white balls are honeydew as well, I scoped with the 1/2 tsp metal measuring spoon.

    Wei, looks like you are the only one who will post questions in a dead blog. >_<
