Tapioca and Rice Puddings are really different. Tapioca is made from a starch of the bitter-cassava plant. It is in small "balls" and is chewy when cooked. Pudding made from tapioca has milk, sugar, vanilla, and the addition of egg. Sometimes the whites are beaten and folded in at the end to give it a fluffy texture.
Rice is a grain and made into pudding with milk, sugar, and vanilla. Sometimes raisins are put into it while it is cooking.
They're quite similar but i like rice pudding way better. Both Tapioca and Rice pudding have a huge importance in my culture, so we make them all the time :3
(BTW, i got the differences from yahoo answers. I've included the link.)
