"Sago is a starch, very similar to tapioca, that is extracted from palm trees. You can substitute tapioca in this recipe, if you don't have sago on hand. Serve with brandy sauce or custard." — Greg

This recipe is very similar to a Steamed Sago Pudding recipe my Australian mother-in-law gave me on my last trip to Australia. It is a classic Christmas dessert "Down Under". I had to use tapioca instead of sago since you cannot find sago in an average US grocery store. After the tapioca soaks overnight, cook it over low heat in a saucepan until soft and clear - otherwise your tapioca in the finished pudding will be crunchy. Serve it topped with a warm custard sauce. Can be made 3 days ahead and freezes well.
