Neer dosa recipe, How to make neer dosa

Neer dosa is a traditional Indian crepe originating from Manglorean cuisine that is usually prepared with rice batter. This dosa is very easy in making as the batter no fermentation hence dosa can be made right away when the batter is ground. Neer dosa batter can be prepared with or without coconut but both yields same output with slight change in taste. Below is the recipe without coconut as my mom makes it that way. Neer dosa tastes great when accompanied with spicy chutney or sambar. Also neer dosa tastes best when served hot. There few key points which needs to be remembered while making dosa and the first one is the batter consistency which plays very important role in making perfect neer dosa as the texture is very important according to the name, secondly the tawa temperature which again decides the proper outcome of it so I have tried explaining regarding both below to make it understandable and easy for beginners.

Ingredients
  1. 1. Raw rice – 1 cup
  2. 2. Water – 1 ½ cups
  3. 3. Salt – to taste
  4. 4. Oil – for making dosa
Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. Wash and soak rice in 2 cups of water for about 5 hours or overnight. (I usually soak the rice for 5 hours)
  2. After 5 hours, add the soaked rice in blender along 1 cup water and grind it. While grinding the batter I dint use any additional water.
  3. Now pour the ground batter in a container. Now add ½ cup more water to get buttermilk like consistency. Make sure to achieve this consistency in batter as thicker nor very thin batter may not yield perfect dosa. The water consistency plays a major role in making perfect lacy crepes which remarks neer dosa. Now this batter requires no fermentation and can be used immediately.
  4. Now heat a dosa tawa and when the tawa is really hot pour a ladle of batter and twirl the tawa. Drizzle some oil around it and cover it with a lid. Now put the flame to medium and cook for about a minute. After a minute remove the lid and you should notice the neer dosa or crepe scraping off from its sides. Now there is no need to flip it, gently fold it as shown above and serve it hot with any spicy chutney or sambar. Repeat the process till all the batter is complete.
