Neeru Dosa


Neeru Dosa

This is one of the popular dosa from my home town 'Mangalore', Karnataka. The name it self tells us what type of dosa is it. In Kannada 'Neeru' means 'water' , so Neeru dosa = Water dosa. It is called so because the batter of the dosa is very thin like water, than any other type of dosa batter.

This dosa is very simple and easy as the ingrediants are also less. Neeru dosa is the combination of rice and coconut. No fermentaion. Beside all, we can have this dosa with chutney, curry, subji what ever may be the side dish, suites with all.

One more thing, as you start eating it,it ends with countless... go on eating.
So here is the recipe.. Enjoy..


1 cup Dosa rice/ Idly rice
2-3 tbsp fresh/frozen shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt


1. Soak the dosa rice over night or 5 - 6 hours in water.
2. Grind the rice along with coconut , salt, 3/4 cup water, until a smooth paste.
3. The batter should be very thin so add the remaning 3/4 cup of water to the grinded batter.
4. As soon so as the grinding process is done, batter is ready to make dosa. Fermentation is not reqiured.
5. Make this dosa as, how you make rava dosa. Pore the batter in the circular motion.
6. How thin the batter that good the dosa comes out, thin and soft.
7. Fry only one side of the dosa. Dosa is ready to serve.
