What are tapioca pearls? It is a granulate made from starch extracted from cassava root. Cassava starch is formed into granules, in sizes 1 to 8 millimeters. How to cook tapioca pearls? I always recommend it read the instructions on the packaging. It all depends on the product, according to some descriptions, pearls should be soaked before cooking, according to others, not.
I usually cook 100g of raw tapioca pearls, I strain it and store it in a glass container in a refrigerator for 2-3 days. I add to oatmeal, yoghurt, fruit mousses. Today I propose tapioca pearls in dessert with mango, matcha yogurt and pomegranates. Tapioca pearls, matcha tea, syrup Maple can be purchased at online stores, incl. in Cuisines of the World .

Pour water into a pot, add 600 ml of water for 100 g of raw tapioca pearls and boil it. Put the tapioca pearls on the boiling water and simmer for about 30 minutes until the balls are slightly transparent. If necessary, add water so that we do not get jelly. When the balls become slightly transparent, pour the whole thing on a strainer, rinse with cold water and drain.
