Tapioca is a very popular ingredient in many Asian desserts. While we mainly use them in tapioca pudding, the pearls are often served by themselves or in other dishes along with syrups, fruit, or even in drinks!
When buying tapioca for Asian recipes, you do not want to buy the magical instant tapioca pudding. Instead, you want to look for the individual tapioca pearls that require boiling. Tapioca pearls come in various sizes, colors, and flavors, so you can have several options to choose from. As a dry good, they will keep for quite a while if properly stored, so you can stock up!
