Rock Melon Sago Sweet Soup

It has been ages ever since I last made this. No choice, you have to made your own cause you can't easily find this kind of mouthwatering desserts anywhere. These are commonly serve in restaurants back in the 80's & 90's but not sure about it now.  And it has to be rock melon, not any other honey melon for replacement. I'm not sure why but it just doesn't taste right with other fruits.

See, this is a beauty. It was gifted by a new friend yesterday. Thank you, Sir and to your Mrs. too. Both the melon & rambutans are very juicy & delicious. Guess, I did make good use of the melon huh! I cut and diced every single inches of it just for the sweet soup. And here's what I did.


Ingredients for Chewy Bite :
3 tbsp   tapioca starch
2 tbsp   water + one drop red food colouring

Method :
(1) slowly addwater mixture to tapioca starch till well combine.
(2) prepare a pot boiling water and a bowl of tap water at the same time..
(3) then carefully drop the tapioca mixture to the boiling water bit by bit by using 2 small teaspoon & let simmer for a while..
(4) remove chewy bite to the prepared tap water once it turns transparent. Leave cool.

Ingredients for Sweet Soup :
6 cups   water
2  pandan leaves (screwpine leaves)
140gm   sugar
*100ml  thick coconut milk

Method :
(1)  Put together water, pandan leaves & sugar in a pot and let to boil till sugar completely dissolved.
(2) off the heat, stir in coconut milk and leave cool completely before kept refrigerated. And discharge the leaves before adding in the chewy bite & cooked sago.

# 100gm   sago (plain or with colour)


Method :
(1)  soaked sago with tap water for about 60 mins.
(2)  drain and then by using the same pot of boiling water with the heat off, pour in the soaked sago and stir for 10 seconds.
(3) then quickly drain off the boiling water and keep them to a bowl of tap water.
(4) Let them cool and drain, before adding to the chilled sweet soup.


Remember only drain both sago & chewy bites and then mix them in, once the soup is chilled enough to be serve. Errrrr..... coconut milk is fattening! Nope, I'm not going to calculate it. Actually, just taken two bowls of it. haha.... Hubby not in, so I'm having his share as well. :P However, I hope you all are having a great day.

that's one of my favourite desserts! coconut milk is actually really good for you according to recent studies, the kind of saturated fat it has actually lowers cholestrol and promotes metabolism, so this is super healthy, no worries!
