Mung Bean with Sago Soup

This is an easy and simple recipe and really fuss free (adapted from the The Sun newspaper by a writer called Oh Ing Yeen). If you like mung bean, do try this as the sago will add a chewy texture to the soup.  

Ingredients: (The portion below is for 1 person, so you can double up the ingredients according to how many people you are making the dessert for.)
  • 30g mung bean
  • 30g sago
  • 20g cane sugar
  • 10g molasses sugar
  • 1 pandan leave (tied in a knot)
  • 300ml water

  1. Soak mung bean for a few hours and drain.
  2. Bring water to a boil. Pour in sago, cover and turn off the heat. Let the sago soak until soft.
  3. Cook mung bean in a pot and bring to a boil, and lower the flame.
  4. Add in sago and other ingredients.
  5. Continue boiling for 40 minutes or transfer to an insulation pot/slow cooker and leave it for an hour.

  1. Hi, visiting through Aspiring Bakers. Your soup looks good. My kids love this. By the way what is molasses sugar? Mich @

    1. Thanks for dropping by. Molasses sugar is basically brown sugar. Here in KL it can easily be found in the supermarket section selling organic food stuff. If you don't have it, you substitute it with normal brown sugar. :)
