I'd guess that Sago isn't as popular as it was when I was growing up (you could expect it at least once a week on school meals) So maybe some shops and the people working there have probably not heard of it !

Sago or Tapioca

You will always find it in India shops as 'SABOODANA'. It is use to make pilf like dish called Saboodana Khicheri. It comes in 3 sizes, small, medium or large pearls.

Ethnic food stores

Have a look in your local chinese or other asian supermarket. Failing that, you can alway look in the ethnic food aisle of your local tesco or online chinese supermarkets. Shedloads of products come up if you search for :tapioca pearl' in the shopping section on google:

sago

Thanks guys - i've been looking for sago for ages and can't find it in Edinburgh. I will try indian stockists. My mum used to use it for thickening homemade tomato soup years and years ago - I just want to take a nostalgic trip back to my childhood and make it myself.

Cheers.

Linda, Sago sold as tapioca (similar although tapioca is from American cassava, sago from palms) should be for sale in your Sainsbury's, Active Way, Burnley, at 79p for 500g !

Sago

Sago and Tapioca are not the same. That's why they have different names!!!! I can't buy it in Aylesbury. Supermarkets just don't bother with it.

Hello Sue

Sago and tapioca can be used interchangeably, at least in Indian recipes.

sago

I live in Chester and have been looking for tinned or dry sago for the last 4 years and cannot get it anywhere. The people in the shops just look at you as if you have lost your mind when you ask for it. Please can anybody help. There are recipes for sago pudding but how can you make the pud without sago!

You may be luckier at Indian stores, ask for Saboodana.
