Sri Lankan hoppers, the bowl-shaped flatbreads made of rice flour and coconut milk, have already had their moment in Great Britain, where they have been hailed as then next sought-after street food. In my efforts to introduce folks on this side of the pond to these amazing eats, I’m starting a monthly hopper night to showcase this one-of-a-kind food. In Sri Lanka, hoppers are a popular and ubiquitous street food favored by Sri Lankans for either breakfast or dinner. They are usually served with some gravy-laden curries as well as spicy condiments such as pol sambol (coconut sambal) and lunu miris (a fiery onion/chili condiment). You eat them with your hands, breaking off pieces of the crispy edges to use as a utensil and sopping up all that delicious gravy with the moist center. Hoppers are not easy to make, but after several years I have perfected my technique, as well as my hopper recipe, and now I’m ready to start throwing down.
So please join me on Friday, March 29th. Seating is limited, but you can reserve yours here at http://www.skizsoriginal.com/friday-march-29th
Hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it, there’s always next month!
