Pearl Sago Porridge Recipe



  • 1 cup pearl sago
  • ½ cup potato (diced into small pieces)
  • ½ cup tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • ¼ tbsp green chilies (finely chopped)
  • ¼ cup peanuts (roughly chopped)
  • 4-5 curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp cilantro leaves (fresh and chopped)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 ½ tbsp pepper
  • salt to taste
  • vegetable oil to cook
  • water as required


  • Wash pearl sago thoroughly under clear running water. Leave it overnight in a covered bowl. Sago pearls will absorb moisture from the residual water to turn fluffy in the morning.

  • When the potatoes are done, add tomatoes, salt, and pepper to the wok. Let it cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the damp sago pearls and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and garnish with chopped cilantro leaves.
