Thagu-Pyin (palm sugar sago) is a light and delicious dessert to end a good Burmese meal.



Wash sago. Bring 1 3/4 cups water to a boil, add the sago and stir. Dissolve palm sugar in 1 cup hot water. When sago becomes transparent, add in the dissolved palm sugar by straining it (or add the maple syrup). Continue stirring the mixture until sago is cooked. Pour the mixture into a 1-inch high tray (or any shallow tray where you can spread the mixture) and let it cool and set. Add a pinch of salt to the grated coconut and mix. Take out a spoonful of the set sago and roll in grated coconut until it is well covered. Repeat for the remaining sago.
