How to cook boba pearls ?
First, we need to understand what are boba pearls, they are made from tapioca starch. Also, they are chewy and black or brownish. Each brand of boba has an instruction to teach you how to cook them. And, I have tried different brands and followed their instructions. However, it takes longer than it says on the packages and the middle of boba still not done when I used top stove cooking method.
After, many attempts to cook good boba using top stove. Finally, I tried to use instant pot pressure cooker to cook them. Amazingly, it turns out very nice and chewy boba pearls in only 2 minutes! Therefore, from now on I will only use instant pot instead. Not only it’s simple and easy too cook, but also inside of the boba is cook through. If you have any left over boba, put them in a fridge. When you want to use it, just warm them up in a microwave for 20-30 seconds. Often, it can store up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
