Though honeydew ain't my favourite fruit but I had this once in L's house it was so awesome.
Her version is totally different from those elsewhere. She was graceful enough to share her recipe with me.
Therefore I wanted to replicate one last evening since I got all my ingredients together, it should be easy as ABC.
Without reading the recipe thoroughly, I went about preparing the melon. Skinning, deseeding and cubing it.
Next soaking up those big round sago as I wanted it with more chew and blah blah.
After all the preparation of cubing it, I realised that I just need to puree the melon. Why didn't I read properly, time and effort wasted. Next blunder, after soaking my sago, the whole lot turned soft and mashy. I got to throw it away and used up the half packet.
I spent a long time getting the sago to cook and vow that I won't be using this big size type anymore.
Initially I thought I had a box of vanilla ice cream and to my horror, it is chocolate chip!!!!!! Oh dear, hubby was nice enough to pick up a box from 7-11.
So back into the fridge my bowl of half done honeydew sago to chill.
The bell rings, the ice cream was sent into the kitchen. Another horror, it is Neapolitan!!!! (a mixture of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate). Hubby said the store don't carry vanilla ice cream and it is the next closest he can find.
We ended up dissecting the ice cream, scooping out only the vanilla. F
inally we had our dessert at 10ish!!!!
After all the blunders, that bowl of honey sago tasted even better.
What you need:
4 cups Water
1 litre of vanilla ice-cream
1 cup of Nata De Coco (cubed it smaller)
700g Blended Honey Dew Honeydew balls (but I cubed it)
Boil sugar and water until sugar dissolves. Cool it.
Lightly wash sago before soaking for 10 min Pour sago into a pot of boiling water.
Cook till almost transparent. Turned off heat and close the cover and let it soak in the hot water until it's completely transparent.
Wash the sago under running water until it's not sticky.
Puree honey dew. Setting aside the honeydew balls.
Mix all the ingredients and served chilled
