  1. Hi, Lucinda. How do you get two colours on it? Did you use coloring or pandan juice? Thank you.

  2. Hi Pauline. For the green i use pandan juice and second layer is orange colouring.

  3. May I know, do I need to squeeze the juice from the tapioca till very dry or let the juice run through the sieve naturally? Thanks

  4. May I know 800g of Tapioca is after grated or with skin on? What is the weigh of Grated tapioca after the skin has removed? Thanks

  5. Hi Adeline. 800gms is grated tapioca from 1 kg of unskinned tapioca. Just let the juice drain away. Thanks and hope you like my recipe.
