    Missy Wombat's Note:

    This comes from the coastal regions of Papua New Guinea. If done properly, you should have little rectangular-shaped sago dumplings. If you don't have banana leaves, you can use aluminum foil.

      A delicious PNG dish that can convert sago-haters. Folks I knew on the NE coast would add a tablespoon or so of coarsely chopped fresh ginger, which makes it even tastier...
