Nostalgic Buka Puasa Delights, Simplified and Healthier – Part Four


Coconut milk is a staple of Malaysian cuisine, more so during Ramadan and Raya for the nostalgic taste, creaminess and health benefits it adds to any dish. Ayam Brand shares some simple recipes for your buka puasa preparation

Ayam Brand has been providing the great taste and health benefits of coconut milk, in convenient packs for decades. Ayam Brand Coconut Milk is hygienically squeezed from selected ripe coconuts, and then sealed in convenient tetra packs using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology.  It is as good as squeezing by hand but without the hassle of cleaning up after.

Just in time for Ramadan and Raya, Ayam Brand has introduced its limited edition Ayam Brand Santan 200ml with easy open cap – so you can use what you need, seal the cap and refrigerate the rest for later. A new pack but the same great recipe.

Sago Gula Melaka

This is a popular favourite, but too often commercial versions are short on the sago and coconut milk, while the Gula Melaka (palm sugar) is not fragrant and caramelized. Try this simple recipe and you will never go back to bazaar Sago Gula Melaka again.


Simmer the sago in a pot of hot water for 30 mins, stir frequently to keep from sticking. While the sago cooks, boil the coconut milk with water and salt. Allow to cool. Dice the palm sugar, and heat until fragrant.

To serve, mound the sago, pour on the coconut milk and add the palm sugar mixture to taste.

Healthy tips:

You can reduce the palm sugar and brown sugar. For a more intense flavour, heat the palm sugar until it caramelises.
