  • You can add a subtle flavour to the dish by using dark sugar or honey.
  • Use stevia instead of sugar for a less energy-rich dessert. Read the stevia container to find out how much to use: it can be as little as 1/2 teaspoon, depending on the brand.
  • Try sprinkling some cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom on top of the pudding just before serving.

HFG tip

  • Use oven gloves to remove the dish from the microwave each time it is stirred as it will become hot as the sago cooks.
  • You can store the pudding in the fridge and reheat it the next day.

What is sago?

Sago is the starchy inside part of the trunk of a sago palm. The beads are produced by separating the starch from other parts of the plant then forming this extract into a dough. The dough is then forced through a sieve before being heated at high temperatures. You can buy sago from the baking aisle at the supermarket.
