Neer Dosa

Namaskara !

“Neer”  literally translates to “Water” in Tulu. But Neer Dosa means Dosa made from  a batter which is very thin in its consistency. Neer Dosa is a very easy recipe and light on the stomach, eaten mainly for breakfast. It’s a popular dish of Dakshina Kannada.

Posting this for my cousin…… and it’s a personal favourite too !

Ingredients: Makes 8-10 dosas

  1. Dosa Akki – 1 Cup
  2. Coconut – Hasi Kobbari – scraped – 1 Cup
  3. Salt – to taste
  4. Oil – 2 Tsp


  1. Wash and soak the rice in water for 8 hours.
  2. In a wet grinder or a stone mortar grind the soaked rice, coconut and salt into a fine mixture. The batter should be very smooth.
  3. Set aside the batter for 4 hours.
  4. While making the dosas, make sure that the consistency of the batter is thin (easy pouring consistency).
  5. To make the dosas, heat the non-stick tawa (griddle). Grease the tawa with little oil. The dosa does not stick to the tawa this way.
  6. Pour a ladle full of neer dosa batter and spread it immediately to make the dosa very thin.
  7. Remove the dosa once done.


  1. The dosa does not change colour. It remains white.
  2. It’ll have a wobbly and delicate texture.

To serve:

  1. Serve the dosa hot with, a mixture of jaggery, scraped coconut, ghee all mixed with a little cardamom powder.
  2. The dosas can also be served with thick coconut chutney.
