Mango sago dessert

     My hubby is not so foodie,he will eat whatever I cook,he has no expectations,obligations regarding food…When I ask him what do you want for dinner/lunch or anything specific you want-his answer will always be ‘as you like/as per your wish/anything is fine for me’. It will be once in a blue moon when he asks me something.

     Most of the time it would be Kesari Raised EyebrowThat blue moon came a month back,when he had this Mango Sago with his colleague in a food court near his office one evening. He told me he liked it very much and even managed to tell me the ingredients and the way to make. I was postponing as mango season just passed, but yesterday when I saw gundu mangoes in Fairprice, I took one,determining instantly to try that out and treat my man ;)

    I google-d for the recipe for reference,still came out with a simpler way than else where…Winkingthats coz for my convenience and ease .Its an easy to make,mild sweet pudding/dessert,has to be served chilled…!

Ripe mango 1 big sized(1 & 1/2 cup approx.)

Mango sago - dessert/pudding


  • The original recipe uses evaporated milk and sugar. I replaced with condensed milk.
  • If you want you can add mango juice too in this.
  • Adjust the sweet according to your taste and I used low fat milk and low fat condensed milk.
