How to make sago at gulaman?

Sago at Gulaman is a Filipino drink, it's really popular in the Philippines, it tastes really good. It's a little complicated to make but it's worth it. It compliments well with Asian dishes or pastas. You can also try it during hot summer months to quench your thirst.

You will need;
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 bar Agar ( gelatin works too) , flaked (or 1 tbsp. gelatin powder)
  • 1-1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried tapioca pearls (sago), boiled (yield 2 cups)
  • ice cubes or crushed ice

Preparing it.
  1. Prepare the Agar (Jelly): In a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the gulaman (agar-agar) flakes; stir constantly over low heat until flakes are completely melted (if using gelatin powder, stir until the powder is completely dissolved). Transfer to a tray (or baking dish); set aside to cool at room temperature. When cooled, it should be firm; cut into small dice using a knife. 
  2.  Prepare the Sugar Syrup: In the same saucepan, bring the remaining water to a boil. Add the sugar; stir constantly over medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place cooked tapioca pearls and jelly in glasses. Pour the syrup into the glasses; top with ice cubes as desired. Alternatively, place them to a punch bowl with lots of ice cubes on top.
  4. Serves 4 to 6.
