Rose Sago Gula Melaka

Christmas is the time for the joyous giving and receiving presents. Usually within the family or close friends, of course it is a matter of money over what you buy. Still, instead of faithfully every year giving mugs, a little effort of choosing the appropriate present within your budget will be appreciated. I've received some weird presents until I don't give any more neither would I like to receive. That is the end of the story of exchanging presents. But I do welcome open house invitations though rare is the occasion now. Perhaps my friends have given up because it is tiring or they are also following the trend of spending on themselves by travelling.

Still, I'm sure a get-together within the family is customary with turkey, devil curry, mutton curryberiyani rice, vegetable achar, drinks (Pandan/Screwpine Cordial), cookies and more sweet stuffs like the Christmas cake. If at all you are rushing and don't have time to make any other spectacular dessert to impress your family, then this easy to put together rose sago gula Melaka it should be, A twist to the classic Sago Gula Melaka, within an hour, ready to be served - 1/2 hour to soak the sago and approximately 20 minutes to cook till translucent.
