Sri Lankan Lavariya recipe


Method for Pani Pol

Boil the honey in a pan and add the grated coconut, powdered cardamoms and nutmeg. Mix well. Allow to cool and use for lavariya.

Method for String Hoppers

Roast the rice flour well and sieve into a bowl. Add enough boiling water to make a dough that is soft but not sticky consistency as for string hoppers.
Squeeze the dough through the mould on to plantain leaves or foil paper(slightly oiled). Place a dessertspoon of pani pol mixture in the center and fold into two.
Remove the leaf and carefully place the lavariyas on string hopper mats and steam for about 8 to 10 minutes.
