Jackfruit Hopper

Recipe Description:

Anglicised as a ‘hopper’, the appam of South India and Sri Lanka is such an ingeniously simple idea, you’ll wonder why it hasn’t been adopted worldwide: a bowl-shaped pancake. Made from a batter of ground rice (and sometimes lentils), hoppers carry a slightly tangy, refreshing taste, contrasting nicely with the richness of our jackfruit curry. Jackfruit is a crucial ingredient in Sri Lankan cuisine, not only because of the sweetness of the ripe fruit or its protein-rich seeds, but due to the mild flavour of polos (unripe jackfruit), a unique plant-based ingredient that turns meaty and tender when cooked.
