Neer Dosa

Ingredients to make Neer Dosa

  • rice 1 cup
  • Grated coconut 1/2 cup
  • Thin poha/ flattened rice 1/4 cup
  • salt as per taste

How to make Neer Dosa

  1. Wash the rice, then soak it in water for 9 hours. Note to save the water from the soaked rice in a bowl.
  2. Wash the poha and remove the water. Grind the rice along with the poha and grated coconut. Make sure the batter is very smooth.
  3. Add water to the batter to achieve a thin consistency. (You can add the rice soaked water here.) Next add salt to taste and mix it well.
  4. To cook, heat a pan and pour the dosa batter onto the pan.
  5. Do not spread the batter like the normal dosa procedure. Rather just move/ swirl the pan in circles so that the batter spreads well. (Since the batter is thin, it spreads by itself and forms a thin layer.)
  6. Drizzle a few drops of oil and cook it covered for 2 minutes.
  7. Serve the dosa with coconut chutney or a sweet mixture of coconut and jaggery.

My Tip:

Do not cook both the sides, this way you will achieve a crisp as well as a soft side. The soft side gives that mild coconut flavour which is the essence of the dish.
