Honeydew Sago Dessert

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Even if life does not give you honeydew melon, you can still buy and make a delicious chilled dessert out of it. Why would I crack my head and embark on a sweat dripping process of preparing an over-the-top dessert. Remember it's about smartness and a matter of other options. I was given a short notice on the arrival of my family. I don't feel good if I can't welcome my family with food because they do enjoy eating. In a jiffy, I managed. I  prepared

fried rice and if you don't have
fried chicken, kids will fuss about eating. Kids also love anything sweet and I wanted to trill them with a sweet treat.  

My other half was dragged in. I had to ask him to buy a honeydew melon.  He is not the best person to do such things yet he accommodated. I had to remind him continuously to seek assistance from the shopkeeper to pick a ripe melon. He did a good job. I was quite glad he followed what I said. The melon was ripe enough to be cubed. I boiled water and dropped a small packet of sago inside, cooked it until translucent and rinsed under running water. I had a bottle of corn syrup and so that settled for the sweetness. The jug of coconut milk was left in the fridge and the dessert was put together for the kids.  If you add loads of ice cubes, kids will love you. They probably will not want to go home so it's up to you. 

The ingredients are open. Feel free to add more or less of the ingredients.
Honeydew melon - remove seeds and skin. Diced or cubed into pieces.
1 small packet of sago - simmer in a pot of water while stirring. When sago becomes translucent, rinse under running water.
Corn syrup/sugar syrup (can also use brown sugar syrup)
Coconut milk or carton milk

Assemble the dessert by adding melon, sago and corn syrup into a serving glass or bowl.
Pour chilled milk on top and serve.

  2. One of my fave desserts, What's your tip for cooking sago and not have them sticking to each other in clumps? I always have that problem. Still edible but not pretty!
