Thai Tapioca Dessert

I love Thai food, and that doesn't exclude the desserts
This dessert is one of the favorite choice among many of them

Very easy to make, such a delight to end a meal with dessert like this
It  can be quite filling, so it's good to reduce a little of your dinner portion and save some space for this dessert :)
I'm using my pressure cooker to do the job, to make sure the tapioca turned soft (it's difficult to enjoy this dessert when the tapioca is dry and hard)

What you need:

1kg of tapioca, cleaned and cut as desired
enough water for the tapioca to submerge
3 pandan leaves, torn
3 tbsp sugar, salt

For the sauce:
200ml Kara coconut milk
100ml water
enough sugar as desired
1 pandan leaf, torn
tapioca starch mixed with water as thickener
  1. Put tapioca, water, sugar and salt in pressure cooker and let it cooked (meat/bean function)
  2. Once cooked, the water will be absorbed by the tapioca
The sauce:
  1. Put coconut milk, water and sugar in a pot and bring to boil over low heat, keep stirring
  2. When boiled, add in thickener and stir well'
  3. Off heat
Pour sauce over tapioca and serve


  1. i never tried this with coconut milk but i've made it before with palm sugar syrup ( gula melaka) and it was nice too.

    1. hi Lena, i think ive tried the one with palm sugar syrup, its also nice, just different from this one :P

  2. I love food prepared with coconut milk and I'm looking forward to trying this!

    1. oh this is so yummy, hope u like it as much as I do :)

  3. Would love to try this! But I don't hv a pressure cooker. Is there any other way to cook tge tapoica till soft? Thanks
