This afternoon, I make an Indonesian dessert called 'es gula melaka'. I came across these dessert while I was watching astro asian food channel. There is an Indonesian restaurant called Tambuah Mas http://www.tambuahmas.com.sg in Singapore which served varieties of Indonesian dessert & foods.

Ingredients :

* 200 g pearl sago
* 800 ml water
* 3 tablespoons sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 100 g palm sugar (gula melaka)
* 2 tablespoons water
* 250 ml thick coconut m
* 100 g palm sugar (gula melaka)
* 2 tablespoons water
* 250 ml thick coconut milk

Directions :
1. Wash sago well and soak in water for a few minutes.
2. Strain the sago, bring 800ml water to the boil and add sago.
3. Stir constantly with a whisk until sago turns transparent.
4. Drain and rinse with cold water.
5. Add the sugar and salt and mix well.
6. Spoon into individual serving glasses and chill in the refridgerator.
7. Shave palm sugar into a saucepan and melt over a low heat with 2 tablespoons water.
8. To serve, spoon some of the palm sugar syrup and coconut milk over the chilled sago in layers.

You can served these dessert in different way, like my picture showed that the bottom layer is palm sugar syrup,chin chaw(glass jelly),sago, ice cube,and lastly coconut milk.
