Mango Sago Pomelo 杨枝甘露

I love mangoes and always order some form of mango dessert when I'm out, whether in hawker centres or restaurants. The fact that mangoes are healthy is of course secondary. What matters is its taste. So, I decided to make Mango Sago Pomelo 杨枝甘露 based on noobook's recipe. Since Chinese New Year is coming soon, give this a try! I assure you everybody will love it! 

And regarding the pomelo... 

Mango Sago Pomelo 杨枝甘露 (adapted from noobcook
(Serves 6) 

1) 600 ml mango juice (freshly squeezed or ready made)
2) 200 ml evaporated milk
3) 3 large ripe honey mangoes, cubed
4) Sugar syrup by mixing 2 tbsp caster sugar with just enough hot water to dissolve
5) 120 g sago pearls
6) Pomelo, peeled and sacs separated (about 75g or more)

1) Boil a pot of water to boil. Add sago and simmer for about 10 minutes.Turn off the stove, cover the pot with lid and let the sago continue to cook on its own for about 10 minutes, until all the sago turns translucent.
Run the cooked sago through a fine sieve and running water to remove excess starch. Set aside.
2) Reserve one quarter of the cubed mangoes for garnishing (step 4). In a blender, blend the rest of the mangoes and the evaporated milk for a short while till well mixed.
3) Mix mango smoothie prepared in step 2 with mango juice. Add sugar syrup to taste. Add cooked pearl sago prepared in step 1 to the mixture. Chill in fridge.
4) To serve, portion out to individual serving bowls and garnish with pomelo sacs and cubed mangoes.
