Hi Aunty,

I have some questions -

1) Do we need to wash/rinse the sagos before using them in Step 1?

2) If we have normal white sago, can we use that and add red coloring instead?

Thanks alot.

hi anonymous,

just rinse the sago and leave it aside for 20 mins before using. Soaking them will cause it to disintegrate and become powdery.

what kind of plastic sheet is it?
microwave kind?

Aunty Yochana said...

hi Elaine.

any plastic sheet that can withstand steaming or you can just grease the tin..

Hi aunty yochana:

Hi Hamtaro,

I bought the coloured sago from Giant hypermart. Yes you soak them in coloured water.
