Heat oil in a kuali and stir-fry the pounded ingredients until fragrant.
Stir in the paku shoots. Add salt and 1/2 cup of water. Cook until soft. Decorate with red chilli.


Ambuyat is eaten by rolling the sago around two bamboo sticks then dipped into the fish gravy and eaten together with pakis.
Sago is a staple food for the Bisaya ethnic group in Sabah.This recipe is a well-balanced meal, rich in com?lex carbohydrates and fibre yet low in oil and salt.
If sago rumbia is not available,replace with any sago or sago ‘ubi’ which must be cooked until clear.
Ambuyat is best eaten while still hot.
