Apr 16, Colombo: Condé Nast Traveler, the world's premier travel magazine, on its online home has featured Sri Lanka's traditional string hopper mold as a souvenir.

"The Strange-Looking Sri Lankan Souvenir All Foodies Will Love" is how The Daily Traveler section has featured the simple wooden mold that every Sri Lankan household has as a must-have item.

"So it looks a little odd-but this wooden contraption will allow culinary-inclined travelers to bring a true taste of Sri Lanka to their home kitchens," The Daily Traveler says.

"It's a string hopper mold, used to make the rice flour noodles-the key component of a Sri Lankan breakfast called, unsurprisingly, "string hoppers."

Explaining how the mold works the feature on the item adds that the string hoppers enjoyed with curry, dhal, and spicy coconut sambol is a "fiery, fragrant breakfast of champions" and the mold is a surefire conversation starter to boot.

"This is how it works: The dough is pressed through tiny holes in the bottom of the mold, and the resulting strands are arranged into circular pancakes. The pancakes are then steamed and enjoyed with curry, dhal, and spicy coconut sambol. It's a fiery, fragrant breakfast of champions. Plus, the mold's a surefire conversation starter to boot," the writer Shoko Wagner says.
