Servings: 4 -5
Author: Maria Jose Martin


  • 1 medium Pineapple chopped
  • 100 gms Sago
  • 1/2 ltr Milk
  • 1 cup Condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp Sugar (optional)


  • Cook the chopped pineapple with a little sugar & refrigerate. Heat the sago ( dont fry it ). Wash the sago & cook it with enough water ( 1-2cups ). Cook the sago till it becomes transparent. Wash it 2-3 times with normal water to remove the starch. Mix the milk & condensed milk & boil it. Add sago to this when it boils. When it becomes thick add sugar & stir. Take it off from the stove.When it cools add the cooked pineapple to this mixture. Refrigerate & serve.


Check the sweetness before adding sugar since condensed milk is already added.

  1. I love this one! Made it for Onam and it was a family hit. But this time I tried to skip a few steps and cooked sago in milk and it was in for a disaster. Took ages to cook and in the end the whole thing burnt.

    I learnt my lesson. I’ll never tweak/skip steps from your recipes. :D

  2. Hi Maria,

    You are doing a great job!!!

    I have tried many recipes in your page. All of them came out very well and my family too loved it.

    Especially beef ularthiyath, chicken mapas, chammanthi podi, tuna cutlet, beef fry, chicken fry,chicken fried rice, caramel custard, vanilla cup cake and many more :)

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Hi Maria

    Thank you, I find your recipes quite interesting. My sister suggested me your site and I tried your oat meal cookies, which my family found it tasty and healthy. With regards to Pineapple Sago Pudding, can I use the tinned pineapple in sugar syrup.


    • Hi Lethi,

      Its great to know that you find this place interesting, thank you :) My special thanks to your sister too for suggesting this space.

      I’m happy that you liked the oatmeal cookies.

      Yes, you can use canned pineapple for this recipe. Please adjust the qty of sugar accordingly. Hope you’ll like it.

      Please do share your feedback if you try this.

      Happy cooking :)

  6. Hi Maria

    Is this the recipe for pineapple sago PAYASAM or PUDDING? I used to make pineapple sago payasam and this recipe sound like that of payasam. so just got curious and asked.


    • Hi Rosy,

      Since the consistency of this dish is more like a thick custard and its served chilled, so we call it pudding back home. However I have seen the same recipe in some magazines under the payasam category.

      I guess you can call it a payasam or pudding ;)


  7. Hi Maria,

    I came across your blog through google and I am very impressed. Can’t wait to try the recipes. Your shrimp roast looked amazing.
    Q for you: How do I heat sago but not fry it? In the sense, Do I just cook it in water?

    • Hi Liz,

      Thanks for dropping in and welcome to MariasMenu :)

      Regarding heating sago…heat a non stick or any other pan and add the sago (dont add any oil). Keep stirring it, till it’s hot to touch. remove from fire and wash it well. Then cook it in water. Proceed as per the recipe.

      Hope it’s clear now.

      Please do try out the recipes from here when you are free…
