Egg hoppers

Egg hoppers
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 20mins
  • Cook: 25mins


  • For the hoppers…
  • 1 tsp fast-action yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 150g rice flour
  • 400g can light coconut milk
  • 100ml coconut water
  • Sunflower oil, for frying
  • For the curry…
  • 2 aubergines
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp grated root ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 200g chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml double cream
  • For the green sambal…
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp mint, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • ½ shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


  1. Whisk yeast, sugar, flour, coconut milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Cover with clingfilm and chill overnight.
  2. Pierce and microwave the aubergines for 6-8 minutes (alternatively you can heat an oven to Mark 4/180C/160C fan. Pierce the aubergines and bake whole for 30-40 minutes until soft).
  3. Allow the aubergines to cool slightly, halve and scoop out the flesh then roughly chop the flesh.
  4. Heat oil in a large frying pan, add onion and cook for five minutes until soft. Stir in spices, ginger and garlic and cook for two minutes. Add tomatoes and cream and bring to a gentle simmer, cook for a further ten minutes. Stir in the aubergine and season to taste.
  5. Mix all sambal ingredients together and set aside.
  6. Add enough coconut water to the hoppers batter to make a thin batter the consistency of single cream.
  7. Heat a small non-stick wok or deep-sided frying pan until hot and brush with oil. Add a fifth of the batter and swirl around the pan to create a thin layer of batter. Crack an egg into the middle and cook until the egg is just set and the batter is toasted and pulls away from the pan.
  8. Leave for a minute before removing the pancake. Spoon in some curry and sambal and serve. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Using leftovers to create a delicious Monday meal. What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
