• 1 medium size yam (cut into small cubes)
  • 3 to 4 small sweet potatoes (cut into small cubes)
  • 4 pieces of pandan leaves (tie into a knot)
  • 1 small cup of sago
  • coconut milk from 1 coconut
  • 1.5 litres of water


Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Meanwhile, cut yam and potatoes into cubes, and put into the pot. Add pandan leaves. Wash sago and set aside.

Put 2/3 of the coconut milk into the pot. Let it boil on low heat for 10 minutes, then add sago. Boil for another 10 minutes, or until yam and potatoes are done to your liking. Add a small amount of water and coconut milk if too thick. Leave some coconut milk for serving.

Serve in a small bowl, with a little coconut milk on top.
