Sago pudding is a sweet pudding made by boiling sago with either water or milk and adding sugar and sometimes additional flavourings. It is made in many cultures with varying styles, and may be produced in a variety of ways.

In Malaysia, sago gula melaka is a sago pudding made by boiling pearl sago in water and serving it with syrup of palm sugar (gula melaka) and coconut milk.[1]

In the UK, "sago pudding" is generally made by boiling pearl sago and sugar in milk until the sago pearls become clear, and thickening it with eggs or cornflour. Depending on the proportions used it can range from a runny consistency to fairly thick, and can be similar to tapioca pudding or rice pudding. In England "sago pudding" is often referred to as "frog spawn" as it is made using pearl sago. Tapioca pudding is similar in that it too can be made using pearl tapioca - it can also be called "frog spawn" but is generally made using flake tapioca in the north which results in a finer, more grainy, consistency.
