Mango Sago Pudding

   Today was the Tamil New year - name of this year is  Vijaya aandu ( vijaya means victory ) . I wish everyone to succeed in all . Iniya Tamil Puthandu Nalvalthukal ( Wishing you a Happy Tamil New year ).
 Sharing  the happiness with the dessert , as no festival won't be fulfilled without a dessert , here is the simple yet delicious dessert..........
 Sago / Tapioca pearls are small edible beads made of Tapioca flour. Sago is called as Javvarisi in Tamil. It is used in making payasam, vadai.

 I want to make it in a different way. I made this dessert after getting inspiration from Indonesian dessert.

As , this was the season of Mango , I used mango in this dessert. The vibrant color of the mango gives the dessert a appealing look.
 This was a simple and quick dessert made with few ingredients. Yes , four ingredients is needed to make this delicious dessert.

Requirements :
Sago – ¼ cup
Grated coconut – 2 cup
Sugar – 4 tbs
Chopped Mango – ½ cup

Method :
Wash and soak the sago in water for few minutes.
Peel the skin of the mango and cut into small cubes.
Extract thick milk from the freshly grated coconut – grind them with little water and strain.

Add the sugar to the coconut milk and mix well.
Cook the soaked sago pearls for 5 minutes. It must be cooked and crunchy.
Wash the cooked sago in water to remove the starch.
In the serving glass / bowl , add about 2 tbs of sago as first layer.

Add a table spoon of the mango cubes.
Pour about quarter cup of coconut milk on top.

Let it chill for few minutes in refrigerator and serve.
Mango Sago Pudding is ready to serve.
