Growing up in Sri Lanka, hoppers were a household staple for Dr. Yum's mom, "Chi Chi." She recalls sitting on the floor and watching while her own grandmother cooked hoppers over a wood stove, and eating them, of course! Here in the United States, Chi Chi makes hoppers to carry on the family tradition. You can watch hoppers being made in this video! Usually, hoppers are eaten with curry. They can also be a great option for breakfast. Most people today buy hoppers, but you just can't beat homemade! Hoppers are best eaten with your hands, breaking off pieces to dip in curry or whatever else you are eating them with.
