Palm fruit is a very delicious jelly like fruit which is highly nutritious too. They are seasonal fruits that we find in summer. I have loved them since childhood and have had them in many ways.


  1. Add water to a medium size pot and bring to boil.
  2. Add rice and cook for 15 mins over medium heat.
  3. Add palm fruit, sugar, salt and half of the coconut. Stir gently over low heat and let it simmer until the rice softens.
  4. Add sago and stir gently until the sago becomes translucent.
  5. Turn off heat and let it rest for 15 mins.
  6. Using a ladle, pour into individual bowls. Finish with 1 tbsp of remaining coconut cream on the top in each bowls.


  1. Serve warm.
  2. If left over, keep refrigerated for up to 2 days and reheat in pot.
