They are similar to sago, a product derived from palm. Sago and tapioca pearls may be used interchangeably (both the name as well the products themselves), as they are both mainly pure starch – the perfect binding and thickening agent
To serve, unmould the puddings and serve with a generous drizzle of both toppings. Like a cold, tropical fusion between sticky rice pudding, creme caramel and a bouncy jelly, this quintessential Malaysian favourite combines the spongy spring of moulded sago pearls with the richness of santan (coconut milk) and the fragrant sweetness of palm sugar (gula melaka) to form a decadent yet refreshing dessert, particularly well-suited for cooling you down after a spicy meal
Cook the sago with milk till it gets soft. Fry the raisins in ghee and add that to the cooked sago. I cooked the sago and milk in pressure cooker for one whistle on medium heat but if cooking it in separate vessel add water and cook it to medium soft
