Brown Sugar Tapioca Pearl Milk

Dear daughter craving for pearls milk tea during CB period, plus seeing the photo sent by my friend that he has made himself the pearls milk tea, thus decided to give it a try. This is very time consuming to roll all the pearls especially I already tried to roll as small as I can but still came out big and odd shaped pearls lol.

Recipe adapted from Oven Fresh by Christine

Ingredients : 4-6 servings
50g dark brown sugar (I used black sugar and muscovado sugar)
70g water
100g tapioca starch

100g dark brown sugar
350g water
2 pcs of knotted pandan leaves

Method :
  1. Add 70g water and 50g dark brown sugar in the pan on low heat and stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Once sugar and water starts to boil add 1 tbsp (from 100g tapioca starch), stir until it is  thicken .
  3. Remove from the heat and add the rest of tapioca starch and mix well.
  4. Knead the dough and make small round peals (5mm~8mm) .
  5. If the pearls are too soft ,transfer pearls in a flat tray, let it rest for a while to dry and roll it repeatedly.
  6. Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a pot and add tapioca pearls and stir to prevent from sticking.
  7. Cook for 15 mins, remove and place the pearls into cold or ice water.
  8. Add 100g dark brown sugar, knotted pandan leaves and 350g water in a pot and bring to a boil (low heat), add pearls and cook until mixture is thicken (15 ~ 20 minutes).


Serving :
  1. Tilt the glass or cup at a 45C angle, and place the pearls close to the lip of the glass, letting them slide down to the base. Repeat this on all sides to get a trippy, tiger stripe-like ripple effect.
  2. Add the ice cubes and fresh milk, soya milk or milk tea.
  3. Serve immediately.

Despite the ugly look of the pearls, the taste didn't compromise. Dear daughter and dear sister commented that the taste is very good, dear sister even prefer these homemade pearls than those store bought.
