Mango Sago Pudding

This is a very good marriage of sago , agar-agar and fruits of your choice. Be creative with this recipe. use coloring to enhance appearance or just do without, it is just as appealing. Mould in anyway you wish.

1/2 cup sago
4 cups water
1/2 oz agar agar strips soak in water for 1/2 hour. drain
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 cup mango - cut into paper thin slices 1/2 inch in length


Heat 4 cups water until boiling, slowly add sago while stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Cook 5 - 6 minutes over moderate heat. Drain sago, put sago under running water to rid of starch and then place in cold water to cool. Then drain.

Bring 6 cups of water to the boil and add in agar agar. Cook until agar agar is completely dissolved, remove from heat and add in sugar and evaporated milk. Cook until sugar is totally dissolved. Add in sago and mango.

Pour into a 8 x 12 inch pan or small jelly moulds. Let cool and refrigerate until firm.


agar agar strips can be substitute with gelatin or agar agar powder and follow instructions on package.

Hi! This sounds like a lovely dessert!!! :) Just wondering, do you know how much agar powder that approximately is? I usually use the powder instead of the strips. Thanks! :)

follow the instructions on the packet of agar agar powder and just add the sago.

My friend, Ipoh-KL-Girl, followed your instructions and made the whole bunch of us eat it. I don't think she can read... it turned out like a "tou fu fah"/sago-in-syrup hybrid!!! ;(

Hi, For the evaporated milk, need to add any water? is it the same as condensed milk or...

lilyng said...


evaporated milk is not condensed milk, it is unsweetened.

in this recipes, use the evaporated milk straight

hi....may i know whats the approx amount for the agar-agar strips? bcoz the ones i normally use, its 37.5grams.


lilyng said...


this recipe needs 1/2 oz converted to gm would be 14.17 gm.

if your pack of strips is 37.5 gm, you could use 1/2 pkt without weighing, the finished product will be slightly more firm

lilyng said...


sure, make sure the coconut milk is more creamy and not too thin
