      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Sago Gula Melaka
  1. This is one of my favourite Malaysian Desserts. The flavours of the coconut milk and palm sugar really compliment eachother. A wonderful, refreshing and easy dessert to make in your Thermomix. And the end to Tapioca stuck to the bottom of a pot!

    Add 1200 gm Water to jug  and boil for

    Time: 10mins Temp:100 degrees, Speed 1

    Add 300 gm Tapioca Sago Pearls to boiled water and cook for Time:15 mins Temp: 100 degrees, Speed 1 on REVERSE.


    In a separate large bowl, whisk up the egg white and set aside.

    Tapioca Pearls look transparent when they are cooked. Once cooked, strain Tapioca in a sieve under cold running water. You may need to do this in two batches. Then add to the large bowl with the egg white. Using the spatula coat the Tapioca with the egg white. Then pour into a large jelly mould (I used a fluted ring mould). If you don't have a mould, you can pour this into a bowl, wrap and place in the fridge to set for 1hr. 


    To make the Palm Sugar Syrup add to jug:

    80gm Water, 150gm of Palm Sugar (cut into 1cm), 80gm Raw Sugar and cook for Time: 4mins Temp:100 degrees Speed:2

    Pour Syrup into a small bowl and set aside.


    To Serve:

    Unmould Tapioca Mould and place a small portion in bowl. Drizzle with Coconut Cream and Palm Sugar Syrup. Enjoy!

You can purchase Tapioca Sago from Woolworths or any Asian grocery. I would highly recommend buying the Palm Sugar from any Asian Grocery as you will be able to find a darker, richer palm sugar.

    I made this the other night and thought it was great!

    Very simple and easy to follow. Saves me from having to stir the sago over the stove.
