Sweet Corn in Sweet Tapioca ( Sakoo Tom Kao Prood )


It's very typical in Thailand to eat desserts made with sweet vegetables. They are not as sweet as western desserts, but they have plenty of flavour. This one has sweet corn in a sauce made from tapioca pearls. It's quite difficult to see the beads of tapioca in this photograph, I had several attempts at photographing it, but they just didn't show clearly.

200 gms Tapioca Pearls
250 ml Water
40 gms Canned Sweet Corn
100 gms Sugar

1. Put the water into a saucepan, bring to the boil.
2. Add the tapioca, and boil for 20 minutes until the tapioca becomes transparent.
3. Add the sugar and cook for 5 more minutes.
4. Add the sweet corn and serve warm.
