Honeydew Sago Pomelo

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as an ice-cold bowl of Honeydew Sago on a hot summer’s day, and you will see why! Balls of cold melon, sago and pomelo floating in a cooled mixture of honeydew and evaporated milk that is both sweet yet incredibly refreshing. Not into Honeydew? It can be replaced with durian, jackfruit or mango!

Instructions

  1. Make the syrup

    • In a saucepan, combine sugar, pandan leaf and water and heat until a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to cool.


  2. Boil the sago

    • Drain and rinse with cold water.  
    • Pour the syrup over the sago and set aside.
