Cooked big sago

Mini Tips:
  • Cooking the sago with a bigger soup pot and more water to allow more space for the sago. It can  reduce the chance of burning.
  • Some recipes suggest soak the sago in cold water before cooking. This is very depend on the texture of the sago as some sago will melt in cold water. Cooking the sago directly in hot water is easier to handle.
  • Cooking big sago takes longer time, if the sago still not done after cooking twice, then you may need to cook one more time.
