How to Cook Sago

Like me, do you also ask for extra sago (tapioca pearls) when you buy your pearl shake? Me? Always.

Even here at home, when we make our shake or ice scramble, I always add sago when available. I like it when after the ice melted on your mouth, there’s sago left to chew. I so loooove the chewy texture. Sometimes, I also use the sago for the Mango-Sago Dessert. So…I’m going to show here how I cook sago. It’s only simple. :)

You can buy either this big sago or the medium ones or the really small pearls. This bag costs about 25 pesos.

1. Put 6 cups of water in a pot. Boil. Add the SAGO. Simmer for an hour. Shorten cooking time for smaller pearls. Stir once in a while so the sago will not stick to the bottom of the pot.

2. When you see that there are only tiny white dots left inside the pearls, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Allow the remaining heat of the water to continue cooking the sago for about 10 minutes.

3. Pour out some of the water from the pot. In a bowl, unload the rest and add more water. Use a strainer to scoop the sago out.

4. Use running water to completely rinse the excess starch off.
5. Add these in your shake or tea or other favorite desserts. Enjoy!
