Tapioca(sabudana)kheer - summer drink

Its summer time. Sun God is showing his power and temperatures are rising leaving us sweating and thirsty. Though its hot, i like summer because all sweet things comes in summer like mangoes, berries, sweet corn, icecreams and milkshakes. One such summer drink i like is with tapioca.

tapioca or pearls??

Tapioca resembles of white pearls round, smooth and shiny. Made of root it is a starchy ingredient used mainly in desserts. If you are tea lovers, another popular drink with tapioca pearls is bubble tea of taiwan.

3/4 cup tapioca pearls
3 cups milk
sweetend coconut(shredded)
sugar (accordingly)
1/4 tbsp cardamom powder


Boil about 4 cups of water and add tapoica pearls to it. Tapoica expands when boiled so make sure there is enough water otherwise the liquid become sticky. When tapoica pearls are boiled they become transparent. Now run under cold water. In a bowl boil milk and add sugar to it. Add shredded coconut and cardamom powder. Transfer boiled tapioca pearls and cook for some time. Chill and serve with fruits on top.
Note: You can also add coconut milk in place of shredded coconut.

Cool off your summer with this drink.
