This honeydew dessert is very refreshing and easy to make. I first tried it during dim sum one afternoon. It was so sweet and tasty that I had to start making it at home.
I had to guess what was in it, so it may not be exactly the same as at the restaurant, but it was definitely close enough for me.
1/3 cup of sago (small tapioca)
1/2 cup of sugar
4 cups of water
1/3 cup coconut milk
1.Soak the sago (tapioca) in 1 cup of water for at least 30 minutes.
2.Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Drain the sago and put it into the boiling water.
3.Simmer until the sago is transparent.
4.Drain the sago and run cold water over it. Put it aside.
5.Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the 1/2 cup of sugar and stir until dissolved.
6.Peel and cut half of the honeydew into small chunks. Cut the other half of the honeydew into chunks and puree them.
7.Mix the sago, honeydew puree, honeydew chunks, coconut milk and sugar water together.
The honeydew dessert is best served cold, and can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.
