Chai Tapioca Pudding

Submitted by: SOXYINMO
Chai Tapioca Pudding

Introduction

Adapted from Back to Her Roots. Lacto-ovo Vegetarian, but not vegan as I made it.

I used tapioca pearls from the regular market and only soaked them for one half hour. The health food store variety may need an entire hour to soak. You want them soft when squished, but to hold their shape when you stir them.

Instead of ground spices you can tie whole, crushed spices into a cheesecloth bag and fish it out before putting into dishes
