Abuk-abuk is a traditional kuih made from sago wrap in banana leaf cone shape. The parcels are steamed. The sago is sweeten with a thin layer of palm sugar. It is best served during tea time.

It has been a while since I made abok abok sago. I was craving for something sweet, typical diabetic patient, have some banana leaves leftover from this morning nasi lemak breakfast menu, I made a turn to the kitchen to prepare this all time favorite kuih.

1/2 cup pink sago
1/4 cup white sago
1/2 cup grated cocomut
1/2 cup plam sugar
1/4 sugar
Banana leaves

  1. Cut the leaves into 13cmx10cm squares . Heat up some water in a steamer. Leave for 5 mins,no need to be boiling point, put in all the banana leaves. Leave for 2 minutes. Then drain and wipe.
  2. Drain the soaked sago. Combine with grated coconut.
  3. Combine palm sugar and sugar. Put aside.
  4. Fold each piece of banana leaf round into half to form a semicircle. Fold again to form a cone. Fill the cone halfway with the plain sago mixture. Add 1 tablespoon of combined sugar mixture. Top up with a heaped tablespoon of pink sago mixture. Fold down the banana leaf (to cover the cone). Let it stand on its base. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Steam the abuk-abuk over high heat for about 8-10 minutes. Remove, and let it cool down completely before serving.
* You can find colorful sago at the shop. They have plain, pink and green.

Kalau cuti-cuti ni duduk rumah tak ada lain yang difikirkan makan aje, lebih-lebih lagi pesakit kencing manis seperti saya, ada aje tekak ni nak benda-benda yang manis. Kebetulan ada daun pisang lebih dari buat Nasi Lemak untuk sarapan pagi tadi, apa lagi saya buatlah Abuk-Abuk Sago ini. Lama dah tak buat tetapi dik kerana kuihnya mudah, tak pakai resipi pun tak apa. Mudah aje, pulak tu sekarang ini ada jual sago bermacam warna, tak payah nak warna-warnakan, rendam aje. Ooooo puas hati betul dapat makan panas-panas.
