Lavariya | Srilankan Lavariya | Sweet Stuffed String Hoppers
Lavariya | Srilankan Lavariya | Sweet Stuffed String Hoppers recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Lavariya is sweet stuffed string hoppers which is very popular in Sri lanka as tea time snack. We can have these for Breakfast or Dinner too. This is very similar to our kozhukatai but made with idiyappam. Stuffing is made with coconut and jaggery. We can add moong dal or chana dal along with coconut and jaggery. Since my mother is from Srilanka idiyappam, appam, coconut roti are most common tiffin items prepared in our home. My mom used to prepare this with simple coconut stuffing when she makes string hoppers.
