Love the vibrant colour of this Kuih Sago! :D Instead of using normal food colouring, I substitute with strawberry paste & pandan paste :D

Kuih Sago with a twist! Twin Colour Pearl Cake

  • 300gm sago
  • 200gm sugar
  • 600ml water
  • 2 tbsp pandan juice
  • 1 tsp pandan paste
  • 1 tsp strawberry paste
  • 100gm grated coconut + extra for serving
  • 50gm gula melaka, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Grease a 7" square pan and lined with plastic sheet. Grease lightly again. Set aside.
  2. Boil sugar & water in a medium pot. Add in sago can cook till semi-transparent, stirring frequently. (liquid will all be absorbed by the sago and the mixture will be thick)
  3. Scoop 2 tbsp of the cooked sago and set aside. Divide the remaining into 2 portions.
  4. Mix one portion with strawberry paste and the other portion with pandan juice & pandan paste.
  5. Pour the red mixture into the pan and steam for 15mins.
  6. Combine grated coconut, gula melaka & 2 tbsp reserved sago and spread over step (5).
  7. Pour green sago mixture over and continue to steam for another 25mins.
  8. Cool completely before unmoulding.
  9. Smear a knife with oil (to prevent sticking) and cut kueh into slices. Coat with extra grated coconut and serve.
