How to Cook Chewy Boba, Black Pearl Tapioca
First, in a pot, add in 1 quart of water. And bring it to a boil.
Then add in 1 cup of quick boba. And cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When cooking boba it’s good to add generous amount of water just like when cooking pasta.
Then remove from heat and let sit for 2 minutes. This way the boba becomes chewier.
Then drain them from water and wash with cold water. As you see boba is giant black pearl tapioca.
Now boba can be used for bubble tea. It also can be refrigerated in an air-tight container for about five days.
