This steamed sago cake recipe is good for those who love kuih sago but worried about the sweetness of steamed kuihs. 
It is one that isn't sweet which is the main reason why I made it.  The sago cake is soft and chewy, not sweet at all and is good to snack on it with the coating of white grated coconut that has a tinge of salt.
If you love your kuihs sweet, then do not make this.
300 gm pearl sago
6 pandan leaves [blend with 150 ml water]
3-4 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp cornflour
150 gm freshly grated white coconut mix with 1/2 tsp salt
  1. Soak sago with some water for 1 hour but rinse it 2-3 times during this time. Drain off excess water.
  2. Blend pandan leaves with 150 ml water. Strain to extract the pandan juice.  Pour into sago and soak for about 30 minutes.  Drain off excess water.
  3. Stir in the sugar and cornflour. Mix well.
  4. Pour into a steaming tray [about 7 inch pan] lined with cling wrap.
  5. Steam over high heat until sago turns translucent [about 30-40 minutes].
  6. Remove from steamer and leave to cool for several hours before slicing.
  7. Coat with white coconut and serve.
