Sauw / Sago Caramel Pudding – A cooling dessert for Summer!

This sago / Sauw pudding  is a perfect summer dessert due to its high cooling effect and to enhance its taste and appearance, I added some caramel into it.

Quite interestingly,  tossing a heap of cinnamon powder gives such sweet aroma and a soothing effect on the tummy too.   Sago seeds

What you need:

Sago seeds  (small) 1/2 cup
Water 1 1/2 cup
Brown sugar(For caramel) 2 tbsp
Salt 3 pinces
Cinnamon powder 1 tsp
Raisins A fistful
Cashew for decorating (optional)
Fresh milk 1/2 cup
Brown sugar 4 tbsp

How to make it:

Soften Sago

  • Soak sago seeds in  water for an hour until the quantity doubles
  • Drain the water and keep aside.

Make the Caramel

  • Place 2 tbsps of brown sugar in the same pan that you are making the pudding
  • Heat it up on high flame.    Let the sides go dark brown  and bubbles bobbing in the middle.
  • Pour 1 1/2 cup of water
  • Add the remaining 4 tbsp of sugar
  • boil for 2 mins

Add Sago

  • Add the soaked sago seeds and cook while stiring.  If the water is not enough add more.
  • Add  salt and cinnamon powder
  • Continue stirring until all sago is sticky and comes together and no water remains in the pan.

Add Milk

  • Quickly add milk.
  • Drop raisins or sultanas
  • Cook continuously stirring for about 6, 7 minutes or until everything comes to a sticky lump.
  • Pour the pudding into a Pyrex dish
  • Arrange cashew halves on top
  • Cover and place  in the fridge.
  • Cut into squares and serve, with little runny honey, maple syrup, golden syrup or coconut / Kitul treacle drizzled on top!!
  • Yummy !!
