neer dosa recipe made with rice flour.

Neer dosa recipe with step by step photos and a recipe video. Neer Dosa is a popular dish from Karnataka. In Kannada, “neer” means water. Neer dosa means water dosa. For making the dosa batter too much “neer” or water is added. The consistency of neer dosa batter is watery. Thus it gets its name neer dosa. Compared to normal dosa, this dosa is made only with rice flour.

You can serve neer dosa with any curry or chutney of your choice. It goes very well with non-veg chicken or mutton curry. To get this dosa perfect you need some practice. Once you try making one or two dosa,  you will get to know the right technique.

Neer dosa is made with only soaked rice, salt, and water. But the addition of grated coconut makes it soft and also enhances the taste of neer dosa.

I call it a 2-ingredient dosa. All you need is raw rice (soaked in water) and grated coconut. Grind them together to a fine paste. Once the dosa batter is ready, you can start making the dosa instantly. No need to ferment the batter.

Tips to make perfect neer dosa:

  1. Grind the batter to a fine paste.
  2. While grinding the rice do not add more water otherwise you will not be able to grind it to a fine paste.
  3. The pan should be hot then only you will be able to get tiny holes in it while spreading the batter.
  4. To check whether the pan is hot or not sprinkle some drops of water on the pan, if it starts to sizzle then the pan is ready.
  5. If your pan is too hot then you will not be able to spread the batter.
  6. Adding the right quantity of water to neer dosa batter is important. If you add less water then the dosa will be dry and cracks will form in it.  The batter must have buttermilk consistency. Then only the dosa will be soft.
  7. Also, while adding water do not tempt to add more water. The only trick is to make one dosa and see if you need more water.
  8. Once you made first dosa then stir the batter well before making next dosa.
  9. Let the dosa cook on one side. Once you see the edges of the dosa coming up and leaving the pan then only it is cooked.
  10. No need to flip it and cook on another side too. Just put some oil on the top and fold it.
  11. Serve it with any chutney or curry of your choice.
  12. You can either fold the dosa on the pan or take it out. Let it cool down a little bit and then fold the dosa. I found this trick bit easy as the dosa will not be sticky. Do the same with the next dosa 🙂
