it’s a hopper morning!

7e617bf2017611e384c322000a1fbca9_7At least 3 or 4 times a week, guests at Udekki are treated to d0aeae66017611e3b85022000a1f9e75_7egg hoppers, along with all the other usual breakfast delights!  Hoppers, or aappa, are a Sri Lankan staple and can be served in a variety of ways – there are egg hoppers, plain hoppers, string hoppers… Egg hoppers are a favourite for breakfast!

f91b746a017611e3877022000a9f1278_7Cooked in a small bowl-like pan and made from rice flour, 1305a1de017711e39dd822000a1ddafb_7hoppers are just the perfect shape for an egg!  They are often served with curry, sambol and dhal, and traditionally eaten with fingers.

Recently, everyone was wondering why it was taking so long for the hoppers to come from the kitchen.  We had completely forgotten that one of the hopper pans had been given to a guest to take back to Europe and the staff were trying to juggle all the hopper requests with one pan! A great souvenir from Udekki!

If you’re staying at Udekki you are welcome to make your own breakfast hoppers – and the staff are on hand to help. This morning Phoebe (8) and Mathilda (10) had a great time making egg hoppers for their first breakfast in Sri Lanka!2fc6a214017711e3a27d22000a9f165c_7
