How to Cook Tapioca in 10 Minutes

I've already shown how to cook tapioca perfectly , but due to lots of questions I received about cooking tapioca, I tried some experiment on how to cook it in a shorter period of time to avoid consuming too much gas or electricity I was amazed by the result that it worked this way.


1/2 kilo tapioca
 5 litres water

1. Put the water in a big pot then bring to a boil, when it is boiling increase to heat to high then drop the tapioca while stirring the water to avoid it from sticking to each other. Let simmer for 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.
2. After  10 minutes turn off the heat, and just leave it covered for 2 hours, without opening it so that the heat will continue cooking the tapioca.
3 After 2 hours and it's already transparent, drain it and wash with water and use your hand to separate the lumps. Drain and this is now ready to be used for different recipes.

You can use this method in cooking small sago.


  1. Wowww..i Will try This thanks ..

  2. hi I just bought bigger tapioca pearls from the supermarket. When I tried to cook it surprisingly after reboiling and reboiling for few hours it still won't get clear and still hard to chew. How could I cook it better?

    1. Put more water then after boiling/cooking just leave it overnight the heat will continue cooking it.
