You remember few blog post ago, I shared with you I ate this Penarakan Sago at this home chef Jeff’s place… Nonya Bong…
Chef Jeff contact, just in case you wish to contact him again…
That day, chef Jeff cook this sago for us… and he actually, later, teach Jay how to cook it, as he needs to prepare it for the dinner guest on the same day…
And he actually shared the “big secret” of making this…
adding the secret ingredients… (cannot disclosed this publicly la..)
Remember this… later we compare…
Today, we have playdate … TGIF!!!
These photos are taken by my little spy – Mr. Kay, as both me and my wife were still working…
Jay decided to cook a special dish for tonight…
He is preparing the gula Melaka. Cook and melt it.
My helper specially go to NTUC to buy a pack of Sago for him.
And he cooked the Sago with a smiley face, I think he see that he is doing it correctly bah..
Gula Melaka is done.
Sago is in the make.
Slowly take the Sago out. Bit by bit. Very hot.
I am impressed.
And he added in the “secret ingredient” so that all the Sago sticks together.
Still think not nice to tell ya what is it on the blog without Chef Jeff’s consent.
And the Sago is sticking together.
Gula Melaka put in a bowl not nice. So, let’s put in some nice container.
Like this one.
Supposingly, my helper need to help him buy the fresh coconut so that we can cut the coconut and use our Korean Cold pressed fruit slow juicer to juice the coconut milk. Since so last minute, my helper bought him a pack of processed coconut milk.
Next, let it cool down n the fridge.
So, he went on playing the latest Nintendo Switch game – Mario Tennis Aces with his best gaming buddy.
I am please that they love the game. A good work out for them too.
Of course, after the Mario Tennis, they went to play their favourite Minecraft. And they actually build an Aquarium for me on a skyscraper. And the technology involving red stones, timer, dolphins, etc. It is pretty interesting when they tell’ya.
2 hours later.
Jay pour the Sago upside down.
Compare to Chef’s Jeff one, I think the similarity is 70%.
Don’t play play. Sago can shake. Shake like Jello.
My young Chef Jay, completed his mission of the day. Cooked the dessert called Peranakan Sago.
It is time to pour the Gula Melaka and Coconut Milk.
Get ready ya. Must be like Chef Jeff ya!!
Hahahaha serve nine bowls.
Let’s see the Sago show.
Not too bad la. It is a Sago.
Congrats Jay learned his first dish. The Peranakan Sago from Chef Jeff.
Like that, listen listen and learn and remember, and do it.
I must say, he actually nailed it.
So, what is the verdict?
Similarity = 75% in total.
Lose points because never use the real coconut and slow cold pressed using the juicer. Use the processed coconut milk pack does not taste like Chef Jeff’s Sago.
But the taste is 75% similar liao. Very good liao.
Well done Jay!
