Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Rinse the sago pearls in cool water, then soak in just enough water to cover the pearls and set aside
  2. Then add water and spices (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom) to a medium sized sauce pan on high heat and bring up to a roaring boil. Boil for about 5 minutes (or longer if you want a stronger spiced flavor)
  3. Next, stir in the soaked sago pearls, reduce the heat to medium and continue to boil, stirring non-stop, until the pearls are completely translucent. This may table about 5-8 minutes
  4. Then add the grated nutmeg, vanilla essence and almond essence if using and mix together well
  5. Finally add the coconut milk and sweetened condensed coconut milk and sweeten to your taste
  6. Serve Hot


Keep stirring the sago porridge while it cooks to ensure that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.
