Sago at Gulaman Drink

This sago at gulaman drink is sweet, thirst-quenching and popular during the sizzling summer months. Agar-agar or gulaman is used to make the jellies. Gelatin powder can also be used.

Ingredients :

  • 8 cups water
  • 1 bar gulaman (agar-agar), flaked (or 1 tbsp. gelatin powder)
  • 1-1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried tapioca pearls (sago), boiled (yield 2 cups)
  • ice cubes
(Cooking Chart)

Cooking Procedures :

  1. Prepare the Gulaman (Jelly): In a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the gulaman (agar-agar) flakes; stir constantly over low heat until flakes are completely melted (if using gelatin powder, stir until the powder is completely dissolved). Transfer to a tray (or baking dish); set aside to cool at room temperature. When cooled, it should be firm; cut into small dice using a knife.
  2. Prepare the Sugar Syrup: In the same saucepan, bring the remaining water to a boil. Add the sugar; stir constantly over medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place cooked tapioca pearls and jelly in glasses. Pour the syrup into the glasses; top with ice cubes as desired. Alternatively, place them to a punch bowl with lots of ice cubes on top.
  4. Serves 4 to 6.
