String Hopper is a culinary specialty from southern part of India. It is a steamed food and can be served for dinner or breakfast. It is made of rice, salt and water. You can make many recipes from string hoppers and this recipe is a savory version in which I used lemon juice and some seasonings. Try this recipe and enjoy.
In a small bowl, add turmeric powder, lemon juice and salt. Mix well with a fork.
Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat. Then add mustard seeds. When they start to pop and splutter, add the urad dal, bengal gram, red chilies, asafoetida and curry leaves. Saute for a minute until the dal turns golden brown.
Lower heat to a medium flame, add the lemon juice mix (lemon juice,turmeric powder and salt) give a quick stir and add the rice string hopper. Mix well and cook for 1 min and Turn off the stove.
Serve hot with coconut chutney or dip.
- Use green chillies instead of red chillies for extra spiciness.
- Adjust salt and lemon juice according to your taste.
- Add nuts of your choice like peanuts, cashews etc.
Totally filling. I mean, one whole squash and 2 little eggs will easily feed 2. Also, the ingredients are so simple—this dish uses things we all have (or can easily get). Easy to fill and less messy than the other stuffed dishes! Sometimes my rice/quinoa/meat stuffed veggies end up spilling out and making giant messes. This sits wonderfully inside the acorn squash center and bakes just perfectly!
