The other week I went on a shopping expedition to Cabramatta with the lovely Mrs S. I was in search of Kaya after reading many many posts raving about it! Little did I know, that Kaya was merely one of the treasures this gem of a suburb had to offer…
Behold! Multi coloured tapioca!
I’ve never been a big fan of tapioca. It was a staple dessert when my mum was little but it seems to have fallen out of fashion in recent years. As I love all things gelatinous, tapioca has secured a firm place in my heart. When I saw this packet of pastel multi coloured tapioca pearls I knew it was something I had to try!
I followed this recipe because if there were instructions on the packet, they certainly weren’t in a language I speak!
Note: I didn’t realise that you had to soak the pearls before cooking them. I soaked these babies for around half an hour and they came out beautifully!

Its like a custardy creamy jelly! Yummo! Definitely comfort food for a cold, rainy winters evening. It’s just a pity that the pearls didn’t retain their colour a bit better. There is still a touch of colour in the tapioca but it mostly washed out. At least it still tasted amazing!
I LOVE tapioca! I’m addicted to easy way tarro bubble tea. Seems very easy to make at home, I must try myself.
Yum, I love eating the starchy little bubbles.
ooh pretty! shame the colour doesn’t hold up after cooking but ahh i could definitely go for a bowl right now!
