I like to cook and eat natural, healthy, and tasty foods, and I enjoy sharing recipes from my native Indian cuisine.
Pineapple and Sago Dessert
This pineapple and sago dessert is different from usual desserts. My children love its pearly, slimy texture. Making this chilled, fruit dessert was fun. I made it as a semi-solid. If you want it to be more solid, you can simmer it down to the desired consistency and keep it in the refrigerator while it sets. Eat it in whatever form you like, you can't go wrong either way. Simple ingredients like sago, pineapple, milk, sugar, and condensed milk are used while making the dessert.
