Mango Pomelo Sago

Some friends commented that I got bitten by the cooking bug recently which explains my new-found interest in creating new dishes. My family is not complaining and I am just glad that they have been so receptive to my contributions to the dinner table.

Even though I have a domestic helper at home, I found it a joy to personally make or cook something for my loved ones. Big Buddy has been a great supporter of my efforts, game enough to try everything that I churned out thus far and giving his thumbs-up for his favourites. Hubby too has been a great encourager, making me blush to hear some of the things he said. As the saying goes : The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – I am happy to speak this love language too :)

Today, my brother and his wife returned from their honeymoon and to commemorate the event, I made this yummy dessert with some remaining pomelo in the fridge.

This recipe is definitely a keeper in my family.
