How to Make Boba Pearls for Bubble Tea

Mix the Dough: – In a mixing bowl, combine the tapioca flour and water. Mix well until a dough forms. – If you want sweet boba pearls, you can add sugar to the dough. Start with a small amount and adjust according to your taste.

Knead the Dough: – Knead the dough on a clean surface dusted with tapioca flour until it becomes smooth and elastic. This may take about 5-10 minutes.

Shape into Small Balls: – Pinch off small portions of the dough and roll them into small balls. Aim for uniform size to ensure even cooking.

Flatten the Balls (Optional): – If you prefer your boba with a flat bottom, gently press each ball to flatten it slightly. This step is optional.

Boil the Boba: – Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the boba balls to the boiling water. – Stir the boba gently to prevent them from sticking to the bottom of the pot. – Cook the boba for about 15-20 minutes, or until they float to the surface.

Simmer and Sweeten: – Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and let the boba simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes. – If you want sweetened boba, you can add sugar or honey during this simmering stage. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.

Rinse and Cool: – Once the boba pearls are cooked, drain them and rinse them under cold water to stop the cooking process and cool them down.
