TWD - Coconut Tapioca
Tuesday with Dorie this week leads us to prepare Coconut Tapioca. I have never cooked with tapioca before - my only previous brush with tapioca was using it to fill a cushion we made at preschool. I have tried the tinned tapioca and that is gross, so I was a little hesitant about this week's recipe.
However, I need not have worried - this coconut tapioca was absolutely delicious, although a little tedious to prepare because the tapioca has to be soaked for at least 6 hours before use. (I could only find small pearl tapioca which worked just fine.) Otherwise, the process to make it is very straight forward, and the finished result is delicious.
I served my tapioca with lychees, because the smooth, sweet fruit offers a nice contrast to the thick, textured tapioca.
