Tapioca. Recipe for cooking at home, what it is, how to cook. Photo

Publication in the group: Asian cuisine

Tapioca is a granular starchy product that is extracted from cassava. They contain B vitamins and minerals in the form of iron, magnesium and phosphorus, which are necessary to reduce cholesterol levels and to normalize the functioning of the nervous system.

The raw material is suitable for those on a gluten-free diet. There are a sufficient number of recipes for making dishes based on tapioca. At home, you can make pudding, dessert, porridge or tea.

How to make tapioca at home

Tapioca (a recipe for making your own from cassava roots) is high in calories and quite nutritious. Therefore, you should not use the product excessively, so as not to gain extra pounds.

The calorific value reaches approximately 230 kcal per 100 g of raw material.

What Ingredients You Will Need

Ingredients you may need to make tapioca at home are listed in the following paragraphs:

  • water - as needed;
  • cassava roots - optional.

The resulting tapioca balls can be eaten with whipped cream or added to various sweet desserts.

Step by step cooking process

The detailed process of making tapioca by hand is described in the following steps:

  1. Cassava roots need to be thoroughly washed and peeled. After the raw materials will need to be lowered into a boiler with water for about 4 days.
  2. Next, grind the component well until smooth. Then it must be mixed with water again. As a result, the refined grains of starch should settle to the bottom.
  3. The starch must then be removed and remixed with water. This process should be repeated about 4 times until the starch is completely pure.
  4. After achieving the result, it will need to be poured into a metal dish, which must be placed on a small fire.
  5. Starch must be constantly stirred during preparation.

The starch will eventually form into small clumps called tapioca. After that, they can be used for their intended purpose.

Tapioca starch or corn.

Corn or potato? What are the differences between different types of starch

If you need to cook jelly, make the sauce thick or make the juicy filling not flow out of the pies, the cook will immediately take a jar of starch. This slightly creaky powder is an excellent thickener. The most popular in Russia is potato. But there are other types that have their advantages and disadvantages compared to the usual potato counterpart. Often, in recipes, experienced chefs recommend using only tapioca starch - we understand what different types of starch are good for and how they can be replaced.

For any kind of starch, the technology of use is the same. You introduce it into a hot liquid that needs to be viscous, dissolve the starch in it, cool it. And the liquid becomes thicker - it gelatinizes. Let's take a closer look at each type of starch.


It is no coincidence that this starch is popular. It forms a clean and transparent paste, therefore it does not change the color and transparency of thickened sauces, it thickens at a low temperature, which is convenient - you can add starch when the sauce is already starting to cool, and you see that it is too liquid.

The disadvantage of this starch is that if it is too much, it begins to liquefy. Therefore, you need to put with caution, little by little.


A very effective thickener that has its own flavor and makes sauces slightly cloudy. Gelatinization requires a higher temperature than potato starch. That is, if you introduce corn starch into a cooling sauce, nothing will work.


A starch that is obtained from the root of the cassava plant. Popular in Latin American cuisine. You can buy it from us in shops with exotic products, large supermarkets, online stores. Valued for its transparency and neutral taste. Unlike corn, potato and other starches, tapioca does not change the taste of the dish at all. Used in puddings, sauces. And Brazilians bake excellent cheese buns from this starch.


Forms an opaque paste, that is, the transparency of sauces and jelly is at risk. It has a specific rice taste, and even the viscosity of this type of starch is not the highest. Commonly used in puddings, best with rice, and white sauces where clarity is not important.


This is flour. Usual flour of the highest grade. She is able to make jelly and sauces thicker. But wheat flour contains only 75% pure starch, so its ability to thicken is somewhat worse than that of potato and corn counterparts. In addition, flour makes sauces and jelly more cloudy, which is definitely not good for berry sauces for meat. But not only for them.

Therefore, we would recommend using flour as a thickener last.

Can one starch be substituted for another?

Possible. But you need to take into account the characteristics of each. Flour, corn and rice will kill transparency, potatoes will give a specific taste. Ideally, any kind of starch could be replaced with tapioca starch, but unfortunately, it can sometimes be difficult to buy. Therefore, it is easiest to use potato starch, but take into account its taste and tendency to liquefy at too high a concentration.

Tapioca Ball Pudding

Pudding made from tapioca balls, milk and eggs is very tender, appetizing and satisfying. It can be included in the baby food menu.

Ingredients needed

Tapioca ball pudding can be made at home with the following ingredients:

  • vanillin - as needed;
  • water - 500 ml;
  • milk - 500 ml;
  • sugar - 100 g;
  • tapioca balls - 38 g;
  • egg - 110 g.

If desired, the product can be supplemented with fresh fruit. As the latter, you can use an apple or a pear.

Step by step process

Detailed process for making your own pudding is described in the following paragraphs:

  1. Tapioca balls should be soaked in water for about 1 night.
  2. In the morning, excess liquid will need to be drained. Tapioca will need to put in a saucepan and pour milk.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Egg yolks should be separated from the protein, and then rubbed with sugar and 50 ml of boiled milk. Pour the mixture over the tapioca balls and mix well.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn off the heat. Vanillin should be added to the composition, thoroughly stirring everything and letting it brew.
  6. Next, the egg whites will need to be beaten well into a strong foam and gradually added to the saucepan with the ingredients.

Tapioca can be used to make pudding.
At the end, the finished pudding can be sent to the table for tasting.

Serving Instructions, Decoration

Chill the pudding before serving. To do this, it is recommended to place it in the refrigerator compartment for about 30 minutes. After the dish, it is permissible to supplement with pieces of fruit and whipped cream.

And with what it is eaten

If the origin of the product is more or less clear, then the question arises, how to prepare unusual balls? Tapioca has a consistency similar to gummies, but has little to no flavor of its own, so it takes on the flavor of the accompanying ingredients. This means that starch can also be used as its potato counterpart or wheat flour in dishes for a variety of occasions.

Tapioca recipes abound with all sorts of pastries. Pancakes, pies, soufflés, muffins, pancakes - adding fruit and berry components results in not only delicious, but also beautiful desserts. You can prepare, for example, pudding as follows:

  • You will need 1/3 cup of granules and ¾ cup of water, the balls are pre-soaked for half an hour. Half a liter of milk, a pinch of salt are added to this mixture, brought to a boil and boiled for another half hour until the composition becomes thick. Eggs (2 pieces) must be beaten with sugar (1/3 cup), slowly add half a cup of hot tapioca and return to the pan. After 4 minutes, the dish can be removed from the heat, add vanilla and leave to cool for a quarter of an hour (stirring) in a metal bowl.

Tapioca is quite difficult to find in the nearest supermarkets, except in specialized diet or exotic food departments. The product can be taken in online stores, where the cost of small granules, for example, from Thailand, is slightly more than 100 rubles. for 454 grams.

Light and interesting products are formed from the starchy component. You can surprise your guests with homemade chips or exotic sabudana kichdi:

  • You will need 50 grams of tapioca, 15 grams of nori and 300 grams of broth. Boil the liquid, add other ingredients, boil until the balls are soft, grind the resulting mixture in a blender. Spread a thin layer on a sheet of parchment or silicone and let it dry in the oven or just in a warm place. Pieces of chips are fried for literally a few seconds in hot oil (they will begin to swell - this is a sign of readiness). It is better to serve the dish with a sauce, for example, salmon with herbs or smoked whitefish.
  • An easy-to-make Bengali dish made of balls stewed with chili peppers and peanuts. For 2 cups of tapioca, there are about 100 grams of nuts and 6 pieces of fresh peppers, these components are pre-ground in a blender. Process the mixture in a pan for half an hour, add turmeric 5 minutes before the end. The dish is served warm along with boiled and diced potatoes and fresh coriander.

Sabudana kichdi
You can diversify the traditional breakfast with tapioca porridge. A hearty product along with a fruity addition will appeal to both children and people who care about their own figure:

Starch powder can be used as a thickener in sauces, jelly or as a binder in patties, and is commercially found in instant noodles.

  • Half a glass of granules will require 500 grams of coconut milk, in which tapioca must be pre-soaked for 15 minutes. Then you need to salt, add vanillin and cook over low heat for another quarter of an hour. Ready porridge can be poured with a mixture of your favorite fruits and berries, whipped with the same milk.

Baked balls will be a great addition to the main menu Vietnamese. Here is the recipe for the latter as an example of the original and simple use of tapioca:

It is better to eat granules immediately after boiling and cooling, although the cooked product can be stored for up to 12 hours at room temperature (no need to put it in the refrigerator).

  • Balls are thrown into boiling water and boiled for 10–15 minutes, then drained, washed with cold water and cooled. It is better to leave them in a small amount of liquid so that they do not stick together. During this time, a cup of strong coffee is brewed, to which a spoonful of cane sugar and condensed milk are added to taste, and it is allowed to cool. The drink gets on the table in the following form - tapioca is placed on the bottom of the glass, coffee is poured to the top, decorated with milk or cream.

These original and tasty tapioca cocktails can be consumed through a wide straw.

Bubble Tea

Tapioca starch in cosmetics. What are the benefits of tapioca starch?

Tapioca starch is made from the root of the cassava plant. Although it can be used as a baking flour, it is mainly used as a thickener. Tapioca is widely used in Asian cuisine, especially in Thai recipes. In India, tapioca starch is sometimes boiled and seasoned with spices to eat as a side dish.

Gluten Free

The most obvious benefit of tapioca starch is that it is gluten and wheat free. This makes it a suitable option for people who have gluten intolerance but still want to bake or add thickeners to their recipes.

General Cooking Uses

Tapioca starch works well in a number of recipes, making it a good choice for baking pies, making flatbreads, and making snacks like chips and waffles. Because tapioca starch is also a thickener, many cooks use it to thicken soups, puddings, and gravies. Tapioca adds chewiness to the recipe, so it's not a good choice if you're looking for a firmer, crumblier texture for cookies or muffins.

Bland Taste

Tapioca starch has a mild, neutral taste. This is an advantage when cooking, as adding tapioca starch will not affect the flavor of the recipe. Because of its neutral taste, tapioca starch can be used in both sweet and savory dishes without issue. Other gluten-free starches and flours, such as buckwheat flour, potato starch, and brown rice flour, will change the flavor, color, or texture of meals. There will be no tapioca starch.

Low protein

Tapioca Starch is protein-free, making it a good choice for those trying to reduce their protein intake. Most other types of starches and flours contain at least some protein.
