Coconut cream-2 tbs
Tapioca pearls(small size)-1/4 cup
Tapioca pearls(big size)-1/4 cup
Evaporated milk-2 cups
Food color-Few drops
Salt -a pinch
Honey roasted peanuts-1/4 cup
Boil 2 cups of water. Add the tapioca pearls to it.Boil it for a minute then switch off the heat source and leave it covered for 10 minutes. If you want this colorful, you can add 2 drops of food color to this.After 10 minutes bring the pearl mix to a boil again and cook for 2 more minutes and switch off the heat. Leave the vessel closed till it becomes completely translucent ;which typically will be in another 10 minutes.( I used two different sized tapioca pearls and colored them differently and also cooked them separately. Meanwhile, mix the coconut cream and evaporated milk and bring it to a boil. Add cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup of water to it and add it to the milk mix and keep stirring till it thickens. Add sugar and a pinch of salt to this. Add sliced bananas,Vanilla essence and tapioca pearls (which are drained and washed in cold water).Cook for another 3 minutes on low. Serve warm or cold garnished with peanuts and sesame seeds.
