  3. Add 1.5 cups of water and allow it to cook.
  4. Keep adding up to 3-4 cups of water little by little until the sago is just done.

  1. Sago can easily turn mushy when overcooked. It will turn into a porridge with more starch release. Need to take care until it is just done and quicken the cooking process after that.
