How to Cook Tapioca Pearls

I have received emails asking me how to cook tapioca pearls because when they cooked it, the result was not good.
So here is the simple and perfect way of cooking tapioca pearls.

We need:
1/2 kilo Tapioca pearls
3 litres water
uncooked tapioca

1 Put the water in a pot then bring to a boil.
2 When it is boiling, pour the tapioca  and stir very well to avoid it from sticking to each other.

3. Stir occasionally  while simmering until the tapioca pearls are all transparent, this means it's already cooked. Approximately 1 hour.

4. Turn off the heat, then drain and wash in running water.

This is now ready to be used for your recipes

Here are some Tapioca Recipes:
Tapioca Mango salad 
Tapioca Corn salad
Tapioca Mango Delight


  1. Hi miss mely ask ko lang paano yong malaking sago? I cooked last weekend and it turns not good ang tigas :( ilang oras lutoin yong malalaking sago? Thanks.

  2. mahigit isang oras over low heat, just simmer lang

  3. -How do you make the arnibal thick, just like the taho vendors do?
    -What is the best sugar to use? Dark brown, medium brown, white sugar?
    -Thanks, Mely!

  4. any sugar is best to use, if you will use white sugar, put 1 tablesspoon of sugar in a pan over medium heat until it will be brown in color but not burnt, then add the wter and the rest of the sugar for arnibal and continue to simmer until thickens,
    1 cup water
    3/4 cup sugar

  5. Hello Melly. For the big sago, i've tried it like this: boil the sago a few minutes, then turn ot off. leave to cool. then boil it again, then turn it off. 9-4 times or till all the pearls are transparent. then letting it boul for more than an hour. unless you're in a hurry! lol ;)
