Water: 2-2.5 cups (if you are really creative you can use the juice of a fresh young coconut - makes a difference!)
Evaporated milk: 1 cup
Knox gelatin packages: 3-4 depending on how firm you want it
Cornstarch: 1/2 cup
Coconut milk (light is fine and healthier): 1 full can
Sugar: 1/2-1 cup depending on how sweet you want it
Yellow split peas or red beans: 1 cup boiled for 10 minutes / soft
I’m not sure whether this is correctly called Sago pudding since I have my mom’s recipe with the title in Chinese (which I can’t read unfortunately). If you have ever been to dim sum and seen the white Jello-like blocks sometimes with red bean on the bottom – this is what the recipe is for!
