Rose Sago Gula Melaka

Okay, so its gonna be another "tis is the season" for merry making? Absolutely. Christmas. Christmas packaged alongside food, exchanging gifts and perhaps, thrown in with getting stoned. Depending on how you want to interpret Christmas, maybe not in the same lingo as me, be happy my friends. Happiness is so important. Yes. Whether you celebrate Christmas or you are gonna be with Christians who have kindly invited you for joining them in merry making, its definitely the positive vibes. So, let me repeat again, go happily and spread your happiness towards others. I on the other hand am gonna stay put at home. So strange actually. When its our 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 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. I am fine. 

Who cares about those who can't be bothered in treating you back. We will survive, and for those who want to survive on making Christmas items (Mutton Devil Curry, Simple Mutton Curry, Pulao RiceBeriyani Rice & Vegetable Achar), specifically a pleasurable sweet treat (Fried Pineapple Rolls, Ondeh-Ondeh, Mango Sticky Rice, Lemongrass Cordial, Nestum Meringue Pie & Sujee Cake), you have this Rose Sago Gula Melaka. A twist to the classic Sago Gula Melaka. Most to most, an hour to make and with freshly squeezed coconut milk you can pick up in hypermarkets, most probably you can also save more time. 1/2 an hour to soak sago and approximately 20 minutes for cooking it till translucent. In between the time, get ready the coconut milk and palm sugar syrup. Then set sago in the fridge, 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. 
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. I bet it won't hurt your fingers and eyes.
