This is a delicious dish called string hoppers which is famous in South India (Chennei) Srilanka, Malaysia and Singapore.
Served with different types of curries.This should be served with atleast one curry.
My husband and I were in Srilanka for three weeks.There spicy and delicious food was some thing that we really enjoyed.We loved this string hoppers served with different types of curries.I like the red rice string hoppers and my husband likes the white rice string hoppers.So we decided to buy the necessary stuffs to make it in our country.
With the help of some people I managed to buy the string hopper mould and the round shaped plastic mat which they use to squeeze in the string hoppers.We stayed over with some friends and they were very helpful to show as how it is done.Luckily I had a look in the way they mix the dough.It is very important to get the correct consistency.
When we returned back from our holidays the first thing I did was to invited my mother in law who is around the corner, to have a look on this home making stuff.. Then we both started our first try out to make string hoppers.
It came out very well and soft.Now when ever I have guests at home string hoppers is also a dish served with the German food.My German friends love this very much and always ask if I could make for them too.yes of course ...only to my close friends!!
It is a little bit messy when squeezing the dough,as it spills all around.So I have spread a news paper underneath.
I mix both white flour and red flour together,which gives a nice colour.
I am glad that I bought the string hopper mould and mat.
This is a special dish at home on special occasion,and every time I make my mum in law,and at times my sister is there to help me out.
