and water. A easy way of measuring the right amount of water would be to add
the rice, stick in the index finger on surface of rice and fill water upto the 2nd
joint of the index finger (a little less is also fine). Add salt and turmeric and
bring to boil (if not in rice cooker). Then turn the heat to low cover and leave for
15-20 minutes. The rice should be ready by then.
The other stuff (to be done while rice is cooking)
Add oil to a large pan and heat. Fry the shrimps until brown (well done).
Remove the shrimp. Add the cashew, raisins, green peas, onion with the cloves
cinnamon and lemon grass and fry for about 5 minutes or until onions are a
brown color. Remove from fire and wait for rice.
Finally when the rice is ready add the rice, shrimp and the rest and mix well and
maybe heat for about 3-5 minutes.
The flavor is enhanced if the mixed rice is kept for about 6 hours and then
reheated (microwave) prior to serving.

IDHI APPA - STRING HOPPERS (NOODLE TYPE BREAD)

Admin :: Edit

Country of the Food: Sri Lanka | Email to Author               Posted on 21 April 2003 @ 18:38:19

IDHI APPA (INDHI APPA) - STRING HOPPERS (NOODLE TYPE BREAD)

STRING HOPPERS UTENSILS & INGREDIENTS

String Hopper mold (Instead of the traditional mold, the Indian Murukku
press can be used). String Hopper wattie (woven small circle trays -
available in Sri Lankan grocery stores). Roasted Rice flour (Ready made
string hopper flour (roasted rice flour) is available in almost any store
carrying Sri Lankan food products).

METHOD:
- In a dry bowl take two cups roasted rice flour (flour should be fine
& free flowing without clumps).
- Add 1 tsp table salt, mix well.
- Let 4 cups of water boil vigorously.
- Gradually add the boiling water to rice flour until you can form a
dough that does not stick to the bowl (It is important that you get
the right consistency of the dough, to get the right texture of the
string hoppers - light, fluffy & dry to the touch. Also without the
right consistency, it will be hard to squeeze the fine strings
through the mold).
- Fill the mold with dough and squeeze the fine strings of flour on to
the watties to form lacy circles.
- Pile the watties on top of each other and steam until done.

With one cup of rice flour you can make 6-7 small string hoppers
(4 inches in diameter). It is advisable to make the dough in small
quantities (2-3 cups of rice flour) at a time. String hoppers are
delicious with Kirri Hodi, Lunu Miris or Seeni Sambol, Malu Ambulthial
or Meat curry.
