When visiting Sri Lanka you should try the (egg)hopper (English name for appa), kind of bowl-shaped pancake with an egg, served with sambol (hot and spicy mixture of peppers). Batter consists mainly from yeast, rice flour and coconut milk.
At the picture you can see the cook making the hopper. In the low left corner self-made egghopper.
