Neer Dosa Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 08:09:00
Neer Dosa is a typical Karnataka Recipe dish specially in Mangalore and Udupi districts.In the tulu language, Neer means water. So, the batter of neer dosa should be very watery.
There are two varieties of Neer dosa, first one is which I am going to tell you. However, another one is called Kori Rotti where usually they dry this neer dosa batter and consume it along with chicken. Since this is a vegetarian blog, I am going to concentrate only on the Vegetarian Recipe.

This is a dish that I learnt from my mother. So, all credit goes out to her

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. As the name itself indicates Neeru Dosa, the batter consistency should be very watery.
  2. If you add warm water the dosas will come out very soft.
  3. It would be wise if you do not use Dosa Rice, instead use the normal rice which you cook to eat.
  4. For Kayi Bella ( i,e Coconut mixed Jaggery) - Mix coconut scrapings - 1 cup, 1/2 cup jaggery and a pinch of salt and mix it well. Children will love this very much.
  5. This dish goes very well with the chicken gravy too. 
  6. This dosa can also be consumed with mango rasayanam which is popular usually in udupi districts.
  7. Nowadays ,it is easily available in all restaurants. However, they do not use coconut scrapings. 
  8.  Out of this same batter, you can also prepare small dosas and steam it, later on dry it in the sun. This will turn out like a papad. You can fry this papad, add little chilli flakes over it. This will turn out to be a very delicious evening snack
