This is a very common dessert served at most Chinese restaurants. It can be said as one of the easiest desserts to prepare. It can be served with or without shaved ice or chilled.
It is thick with blended honey dew mixed with sago and coconut milk. The sweetness is just nice.  Refreshingly good after meals.
Recipe adapted from Agnes Chang’s Book-Tasty Temptations
1 kg honey dew melon – seeded and skin removed
200 gm sago – soaked
300 ml thick coconut milk
½ tsp salt
Syrup Ingredients
150 gm sugar
2 pandan leaves –knotted
125 ml water
1 bowl of ice cubes – optional
  1. Boiled syrup ingredients until sugar dissolves. Set aside.
  2. Shape some honey dew melon into small balls with a scoop as garnishing. Set aside.
  3. Cut the remaining into small pieces and liquidize them in a blender. Chill in the fridge.
  4. Bring a pot of water to boil. Put sago into boiling water and cook till transparent. Pour into a sieve, rinse under running tap water to remove the starch and drain.
  5. Mix sago, honey dew balls, syrup, coconut milk and salt with liquidize honey dew in a mixing bowl and add ice cubes [if using] otherwise, chill in the fridge until later.
  6. Dish into small bowls to serve as dessert.

Kimmy, I usually get to eat this at wedding dinners. I love it because it is so refreshing and has the nice taste and fragrance of honey melon.

I need a big bowl of this dessert at such weather.

Hi Mei, thanks for your comment. Initially, I thought it is a complicated recipe but it isn't. Really easy to prepare yet the result is satisfying.

Hi Phong Hong, this dessert has the natural sweetness of the honey melons. Good to use the ripe ones. Love the santan in it.

Kimmy said...

Hi Jess, honey melon was so cheap. I bought this for less than RM2 from Giant Hypermarket recently. Definitely worthy to prepare this at home during these hazy days.

Sedap (delicious). I love to eat it cold.

Kimmy said...

Hi Amy, agree this is really sedap. I prefer to chill it before serving rather than adding crushed ice. I like it concentrated.

Hi Kimmy,
This chilled dessert with sweet coconut fragrance is so refreshing.

Kimmy said...

Hi HHB, you are a loving mum, children comes to your mind first. I'm sure they will love this chilled like I do. All the best to your children in their exams.

Kimmy said...

Hi Karen, the savoury 'lemak' taste blends well with the sweet melon juice and cubes. I had 2 bowls in one go, Tam Chiak!
