I wanted to make this pearl bubbles for such a long time, but I always thought it was too hard for me. It turns out if you have a good recipe, it is not that hard after all! Before this I had tried twice with someone else’s recipe, they both failed so I was afraid of trying until I saw this recipe.

Tapioca starch : water : dark brown sugar =2:1:0.5

With this ratio, you will never fail, it is so easy and you don’t even need scale.

Add brown sugar and water to a sauce pan and bring it to boil (make sure it is a big boil)

Add the sugar water to the starch and mix right away with a spoon, after water is absorb by the starch, use your hand to knead it( be careful it is HOT and Sticky) after you knead it for a little bit, it will come together. If it is too sticky, add a little more tapioca starch but not too much. Continue to knead it for 2 minutes.

Roll it into a long strip and cut it into a few even pieces, roll each one of them into longer, smaller strips, then cut them into small balls. Some people will stop here which is fine, but if you have the patient, roll each single one of them into round balls. (I know it is a lot of work)

Use a big cooking pan and bring 10 times as much water to boil, then add the pearl bubble to the boiling water, constantly stir so they won’t stick to the pan. when they all flow to the top of the water, turn the heat to medium low and cover the pan. Continue to  cook for 15-20 minutes. Turn the heat off with the cover on for 20-30 minutes( depends on the amount you make)

Get all the bubbles out of the hot water and pour them to a bowl of iced cold water. Rinse after 10 minutes.

In another cooking pan, add 1/3 cup water and 3tbsps dark brown sugar(I made about 1/2 cup of tapioca starch with 1/4 cup water’s bubbles, you have to adjust this syrup according to the amount of bubbles you make) and bring them to boil with medium low heat and constantly stir until it is thick and syrup like, add the pearl bubbles to the syrup and continue to stir for a minute.

Spoon some pearl bubbles to a glass, turn the glass so the syrup will stick on the inside of the glass. Add some milk or milk tea to the glass. There you have it!!!

木薯粉 : 水 : 黑糖 = 2:1:0.5




把它捲成一條長條,切成幾塊等份,把每份都揉成更長、更細的條。然後切成小粒。有些人會在這裡就停下來就好了。 但如果你有耐心 把每顆都給他滾成圓球吧。(我知道這很費時間)

用一口大鍋裝10倍的水煮開,然後把珍珠加到沸水中並不斷攪拌,這樣它們就不會粘在鍋里。當它們全部都浮到水面時,將火調低至中低並蓋住鍋子。繼續煮15-20分鐘。 然後熄火蓋著 20-30 分鐘(取決於您做的珍珠的量)
