Vegan Raspberry Sago Pudding

My today's post is an easy breezy pudding which is a vegan friendly dessert and adding raspberry makes this pudding more interesting. Sago pearls are made from the inner pith of sago palm tree. The inner pith of the trunk is scraped out, pounded into fine particles, then soaked in water, which dissolves the starch from the fiber. This starchy water is strained through a sieve and dried. The starch that remains after the water evaporates is shaped into pearls. These sago pearls are very much used in Indian cooking to cook many delicious desserts and savory dishes as well.
