Rose Sago Gula Melaka

Oh, its gonna be another "tis is the season" for merry making. Christmas. Food, exchanging gifts and maybe getting stone as well. Whatever, be happy my friends. I on the other hand am gonna stay put at home. Its so strange actually. When its our turn to Deepavali (Semolina/Rava Ladoo), friends swarm into our house, but when its their turn, goodness me, they prefer to travel. Then what? Nothing. They move on with their lives and we do as well. That's why, each and every year, my mood for entertaining friends is diminishing. I mean, why bother when friends don't bother. Anyway, not a big deal anyway. I am fine. 

Now, lets get to the recipe of the day. Its a dessert which I think you may consider for Christmas (Mutton Devil Curry, Simple Mutton Curry, Pulao RiceBeriyani Rice & Vegetable Achar). One which you can make a day ahead and then, just serve when guests start popping by (Fried Pineapple Rolls, Ondeh-Ondeh, Mango Sticky Rice, Lemongrass Cordial, Nestum Meringue Pie & Sujee Cake). Rose Sago Gula Melaka is a twist to the classic Sago Gula Melaka. You just need an hour to make, and these days with freshly squeezed coconut milk sold in markets, most probably you can also save more time. By far however, 1/2 hour to soak sago and approximately 20 minutes for cooking it till translucent. In between the time you have, sure, work on coconut milk and palm sugar syrup. Then set sago in the fridge and dessert is ready.   
1 cup sago - soak for 1/2 hour and carefully rinse
Coconut Milk (as needed)
Palm Sugar (as needed)
Few drops of rose essence
Few drops of red colouring 
Pinch of salt
Simmer enough water in a  pot. 
Add sago, stir and cook till translucent.
Drain out water and rinse sago under running water.
Mix color and rose essence into sago. .
Press into individual cups or a single mould. 
Cool down and store in the fridge.
Simmer palm sugar with water for thick syrup.
Warm up coconut milk with a pinch of salt.
Serve with chilled sago.
