“This menu is bursting with fiery summer flavours,” says Hoppers’ director Karan Gokani. “Grilled chicken, succulent fish and juicy corn are perfect for a barbecue, but they’re equally as delicious when cooked in the oven.”

The menu includes a barbecue-friendly version of Hoppers’ popular Kalupol-marinated chicken. “Kalupol is a spice blend made with roasted coconut and chillies,” explains Karan, “it’s usually used in traditional Sri Lankan curries but we combine it with aromatics and herbs to create a rub for our chicken chops.” The corn-fed chicken legs come pre-marinated, ready to be cooked at home until tender and juicy inside and charred outside, then topped with a vibrant turmeric and coconut garnish.

For the fish centrepiece, whole sea bass is marinated in fresh herbs and spices then wrapped in a banana leaf. “This is a very common way of cooking fish in South India,” explains Karan. “It means that the fish steams inside the leaf, keeping it really soft and moist.” The sea bass is served with a punchy green sauce packed with coriander, garlic, ginger and lemongrass, along with the restaurant’s flaky, paratha-like rotis for scooping it all up.

A side of corn on the cob also gets the Hoppers makeover. It comes part-cooked, ready to be pan-fried or barbecued, then slathered in a sweet-sharp tamarind chilli butter and garnished with a sprinkle of coriander and coconut sambol.
