Hoppers (Apam) are quite similar to thosais and originated from South India. Traditionally hoppers are cooked in earthenware pots with rounded bottoms which are placed in the ashes of a slow charcoal fire.

The batter is poured in and the pot spun quickly to make the batter swirl round into the hotter parts of the pot. This gives a lacy crisp border to the hopper. This method of cooking needs skill and therefore it is easier to use a small omelette pan to make the hoppers. Just swirl the batter so that it runs up the sides.
