Gula Melaka Milk Bubble Tea

Nice but time consuming. Will opt for ready to cook or eat in the future LOL

Recipe source is from Yuda Bustara

What you need:

For the pearl:
200g tapioca starch, sifted
80g + 100g shaved gula melaka
130ml water
extra tapioca starch


  1. In a pot, bring water to boil. Add in 80g gula melaka and stir until melted
  2. Add in tapioca starch and mix. The mixture will be watery. Keep stirring over very low fire until it's thickened up, about 5minutes or so
  3. Transfer to a lined surface and knead for a while until it's pliable
  4. Break into a few parts and roll into long logs and cut into small beads
  5. Roll each bead into a small ball and put on a plate with tapioca starch in it to avoid the balls from sticking to each other
  6. After finish with the rolling, bring a pot of water to a boil and simmer them for 15minutes over medium low fire
  7. Drain and put back into the pot, mix in 100g gula melaka and simmer over low fire until all gula melaka melted
  8. Keep in the fridge until it's ready for use

For the milk tea:
a cup of black tea (any tea of your choice, English breakfast, Earl grey, etc), you may omit if you prefer just fresh milk for your bubble tea drink
some ice cubes
fresh milk


  1. Add in a few spoonful of pearls into a tall glass. You may tilt the glass 45deg, twirl it so the gula melaka can stick to the sides of the glass (more for presentation)
  2. Add in ice cubes and pour tea followed by milk. The ratio depends on one's preference
  3. Ready to serve. Stir before you consume
