  • ½ cup raw big Sago
  • 1 liter boiling water


  • In a large pot, boil 1 liter of water. When it reaches the boiling stage add big sago.
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent from sticking together.
  • Fire off, cover with a lid and leave it for another 20 minutes.
  • Rinse with tap water, several times. Let it cool down and soak half cooked sago with cold water and keep refrigerated for at least 8 hours.
  • After several hours in the fridge, drain water from sago. In a large pot boil the sago again, over boiling water and reduce time by 10 minutes only.
  • Stir constantly to prevent from sticking at the bottom of the pot.
  • Fire off, and cover with a lid and leave it for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse Sago with tap water for the last time, and transfer in a bowl with water and keep refrigerated until white parts disappear.
  • Drain water, your well-cooked, and transparent sago is ready to use.
