Rockmelon Sago pudding recipe – Singapore dessert recipes

          Hope you all had a great Diwali festival. After all the efforts put in making of the diwali snacks and sweets and also tasting them, all I want is some rest and some simple food. So yesterday I had a good nap in the afternoon after a long time and felt good. The climate has been really hot with occasional showers now and then. But we really crave for something chilled or  juicy fruits in the afternoon instead of a hot cup of tea. So a couple of days ago , I had made this dessert. You will find a wide range of desserts in the local food courts of singapore. Whenever I visit the food court in search of vegetarian food there, I often stop by the dessert stall and have a look at the desserts available though I have hardly ever tasted them. I often think of having them, but am always worried about how it would taste and the ingredients used. But the desserts here are quite healthy often with less or no sugar. Sugar is often replaced with palm jaggery. They have something called mung bean dessert which I will be trying soon. I have tasted icekachang which is something similar to our Indian ‘gola’ but is accompanied with many healthy beans along with it. A lot of red beans and other bean varieties is used in the local dessert preperation.

       The dessert I am posting today is also a local delight usually made with honeydew melon or sometimes even mango. But I decided to make it with the rock melon I had bought with my own few additions. Hope you try this and let me know.
