Srilankan Style Sago Porridge

Srilankan Style Sago and Jaggery Porridge is one of my moms favorite things to make on Thursday nights with Warm Pol Rotti

She would break the rotti into tiny bits and mix them with the delicious sweet porridge like pudding and enjoy with freshly squeezed coconut milk… Sounds so comforting right??

Sago looks similar to tapioca pearls that become glossy and transparent once cooked but sago is not chewy like the bobas instead they’re really soft.However they’re both sourced differently.In Srilanka Sago is commonly found and used for many sweet dishes.If you check my feed you will notice I used it to make Purple Yam Pudding,Sweet Kitchdi and I also use them while making the Pani Pol mixture….Gives a great texture to your dish??

Anyway this Sweet Porridge is made quite often in our little home just like my mom used to make every Thursdays…Some things become tradition and it makes me feel closer to her when I continue doing something she used to do…

The sago is cooked in water infused with cardomoms, then mixed with Kithul Jaggery that melts and brings out a beautiful colour.I do not use sugar but you can totally do that if you have no jaggery available : my friend Hafsa tried out with caramelised sugar because her jaggery stash was over and it still looked so good??

Vermecilli is also a great addition to this sweet porridge

I make myself a Creamy Dreamy Sago Porridge with only coconut milk when I’m in a mood to have it for breakfast with some chopped fruits. Recipe is already on the blog site, refer to link attached below :
