Step 1

Soak sago in water and keep a side for 20 minutes.

Step 2

After 20 minutes, drain it and set aside.

Add the coconut milk, sugar and the cardamom and stir it occasionally till the sugar had dissolved.
:- If using essence, add it at this stage.

:-This indicates the sago is cooked.

:- So that its completely cold when you add the lychee.

Step 8

Split the whole lychee into 4 and keep aside.

Step 9

Once the milk mixture is cold, add the lychee into it and place it back into the fridge.

Step 10

:- Serve it cold!!!

Step 11

:- Certain times, when using tinned lychee, the recipe should be done without then when adding the tinned lychee`s, the syrup can be used which increases the flalvour of the dessert.


I have made this without the lychee before and I assume the lychee will gice it another dimension. However, in your after note, I think you meant to say that if using canned lychess, forgo the sugar and not the MILK! Hope I am right so other people don t follow it blindly. Thank you for the recipe!
