  • 300 grams silken tofu
  • ¼ cup large tapioca pearls or you may use the small ones (which require less time)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 pandan leaf tied (optional)


  • The night before, boil the large tapioca pearls according to package instructions (25 minutes over medium flame) and let it sit covered overnight at room temperature and re-boil again the next day. TIP: To reduce time, use small tapioca pearls. Boil the pearls for 15 minutes and let them sit for another 15 minutes. Strain and rinse under cold water to keep them bouncy.
