- 200g tapioca flour.
- 20g cocoa powder.
- 120ml boiling water.
- 40g brown sugar.
- Step 1: Knead the dough to make the pearls: First, you mix 200g of tapioca powder with 20g of cocoa powder. Next, you put 120ml of water and 40gr of brown sugar into the pot, stir to dissolve and bring to a boil. If you want to make white thread pearls, you can change the brown sugar for granulated sugar. When the water is boiling, pour it into the mixing bowl, just add the water and use a chopstick to stir the water into the flour. Note that to avoid burns, do not knead the dough with your hands. Next, when the dough is cool, knead it by hand until the dough does not stick to your hands. Then, cover the dough with cling film and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes for the dough to rise evenly.
- Step 2: Shaping the pearls: You divide the kneaded dough into small pieces, roll the dough thin and then use a knife to cut the dough into long thin strands. In addition, you can put the powder in an ice cream bag, cut a small hole at the top of the bag and then shape it into a thread. Then, you coat the pearls with a layer of tapioca starch so that when boiling the pearls they do not stick together.
- Step 3: Boil the pearls to bloom evenly, soft and flexible: Put in a pot of 1 liter of water (depending on the amount of pearls that you change the appropriate amount of water), bring to a boil, then add the pearls and boil for about 20-30 minutes. During the boiling time, adjust the heat to low, cover the pot. When the pearls are cooked, turn off the heat but still keep the pearls in the pot, cover, and incubate for about 20 minutes for the pearls to bloom evenly. Then, you take out the pearls and rinse them with ice cold water to create a crunchy consistency. Finally, you put in a bowl of pearls an amount of brown/yellow sugar or alum sugar enough to cover your face, stir well to let the pearls absorb the sugar.
