Sago Pudding -Thai Desserts

Sago looks like many other starches, both sago and tapioca are produced commercially in the form of "pearls". Sago pearls are similar in appearance to tapioca pearls, and the two may be used interchangeably in some dishes. This similarity causes some confusion in the names of dishes made with the pearls.

Pearl sago, a commercial product, closely resembles pearl tapioca. Both typically are small (about 2 mm diameter) dry, opaque balls. Both may be white (if very pure) or colored naturally grey, brown or black, or artificially pink, yellow, green, etc. When soaked and cooked, both become much larger, translucent, soft and spongy.

In Thailand we also use Pearl Sago to make many Thai dessert or snack. I has made Sago & Yam pudding, but cooked with sugar and topping with salty coconut milk. This is one of my favoured too.
