Hoppers are a foodstuff used in Sri Lankan cuisine, most frequently for breakfast.
The string hopper is rice noodles curled into flat spirals. It is served for breakfast with a thin fish or chicken curry, containing only one or two modest pieces of meat, a dahl (lentil) dish, and a spicy sambol or fresh chutney.

String hoppers are made from steamed rice flour made into a dough with water and a little salt, and forced through a mould similar to those used for pasta to make the strings. They are cooked by steaming. These hoppers can be bought ready-made.

Plain hoppers are bowl-shaped thin rice flour pancakes. They derive their shape from the small wok in which they are cooked. They are fairly bland, and always served with a spicy accompliment.

These hoppers are made from a batter using rice, yeast, salt and a little sugar. After the mixture has stood for a couple of hours, it can be fried in the wok with a little oil.

Egg hoppers are the same as plain hoppers, but an egg is broken into the pancake as it cooks.

A hopper on a combine is a tank or bin where the harvested grain is temporarily stored until it is unloaded to a truck or grain cart.
The hopper in the United States House of Representatives is the box which sits on the House Clerk's desk, into which a bill or resolution is dropped for introduction.
