Bring the milk, salt, sugar, cinnamon stick and sago to the boil and allow to simmer until the mixture thickens.
Lightly beat the egg yolks and add to the mixture on the stove while stirring.
Butter a baking dish and pour sago into the dish.
Beat the egg whites until it forms stiff peaks.
Add the caster sugar, a little at a time, while still beating.
Spoon the egg white over the sago pudding and bake for 20 minutes.
If you wish and you really have a sweet tooth , you can add dollops of apricot jam on the sago before you cover it with the egg whites.
Serve with a thin vanilla custard or ice-cream!
