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. Sugar Palm Fruit Dessert is delicious and easy to make.

1/2 cup of white tapioca pearl/sago soaked (10 mins) and strained
1 tin palm fruit (200 gram), drained and sliced 1 cm thick
1 cup of coconut milk/cream
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 cup of palm sugar
2 cup of water

  1. Put water to a medium size pot and bring to boil.
  2. Add rice and cook for 15 mins over medium heat.
