3 days ago I made another batch of my homemade taho and this time I didn’t buy ready to use sago (tapioca pearls) and as usual I made my own arnibal (sugar syrup). Oh may I just say that boiling your own sago is so easy, I thought it was hard. I made way too much so when I was in the market looking for the freshest lapu-lapu fish for my Escabeche (Sweet and Sour fish) craving, an idea came into mind to make a yummy dessert using the remaining sago and arnibal.
This is what I came up with.
I just pre-boiled the bananas in a bit of water then add the arnibal. Once the syrup became thicker and it’s almost ready, that’s when I add in the sago. I let it boil for another minute.
It was so good! The bananas have the perfect texture; not too soft that it’s mushy, it’s still chewy. It’s not too sweet that it’s nakaka-umay either. I don’t like anything too sweet. I had seconds of this. The sago gives this dessert the ooomph factor.
I was just so contented with this. Why? Well it’s so delicious and it’s very easy to make. It’s cheap too. I’d be making this more often now.
