Mulitcolored Tapioca Pearls

rockycat Aug 12, 2010 07:03 AM

Impulse purchase at an Asian grocery store - multicolored tapioca pearls, like the kind that you get in bubble tea, only they're white, pink, green, purple, etc. I bought them because they looked so cool and had English preparation instructions on the package, but now that I have them, what do I do with them? I don't think I've ever used tapioca for anything before and I don't especially like American tapioca pudding.

All thoughts welcome.

    I've never tried it but maybe you can cook and serve it like couscous..I can't really think of anything else not pudding related.

      I didn't mean any kind of pudding...just the traditional American style that seems to me to be thick gloopy milky stuff just plopped in a bowl. Asian style coconut milk based recipes would be very welcome.
