Cheap and simple way to create bubbly summer treat

Ngày đăng: 20/05/2016 .
Inspired by bubble pearl tea from Taiwan, Vietnam offers its own bubbles with a distinctive fresh flavor that burst into chewy treats made from a cheap, popular fruit known as the jicama.

The bubbles have become one of the indispensible elements of Vietnamese rice pudding that help to ward off the heat on a scorching summer's day.

Step 3: Pour some tapioca starch into a dry bowl and then combine with the rest of the mixture so the starch coats the jicama.

Squeeze the jicama gently, but try not to stick them together.

Wait about two minutes for the starch to soak into the jicama.

Step 4: Shake through a sieve to remove the excess starch.

Step 5: Slowly pour the mixture into boiling water and stir gently for about three minutes.
