This is one of my favorite dessert. I got this recipe from my mom, who is a great cook and I love all her recipes. I use to make this dessert for birthday, anniversary day and festival days. This is my husband favorite dessert too. One thing I love about sago is that it gives cooling effect to the body and great in taste when you add sugar to it.
