  1. Soak 1 cup rice in enough water for 4 to 5 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain the soaked rice and add them in a wet grinder jar.
  3. Just add water enough for grinding the rice, add coconut. if you add all the water then you won't be able to grind the rice well.
  4. Grind to a smooth batter and then take it in another bowl.
  5. Add more water to get a thin flowing watery consistency. i added 2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice. the addition of water depends on the quality and kind of rice. so add water as required.

  7. In a non stick pan. drizzle ½ tsp of oil.
  8. Just spread the oil all over with a spoon.
  9. Stir the batter and take a ladle full of batter.
  10. Then pour the batter moving outwards to inside like the way we do for rava dosa.
  11. Fill in the large gaps too with some of the batter.
  12. Cover with a lid and cook the neer dosa till done. don't brown it or flip it.
  13. Make a triangular fold on the tawa itself.
  14. Then remove the dosa and place it in a plate.
  15. Serve neer dosa hot or warm.
