Neer Dose

Neer Dose - Crispy Neer Dose with a twist
Preparation Time : 30 minutes
Cooking Time.      : 10 minutes

Ingredients :

4 cups Rice
2 cups grated coconut
Groundnut oil 1/4 cup
Salt to taste

Preparation :

  • Wash the rice and soak in water for about 6 to 8 hours. You may soak them overnight if you are making the Dose in the morning.
  • Mix the soaked rice and coconut and grind to nice paste.
  • Add lots of water so that you have a running batter. The consistency should be like buttermilk.
  • Heat a non stick tawa.
  • With a ladle pour the batter on the tawa and simultaneously rotate the tawa with your left hand holding the handle such the the batter spreads all over the tawa.
  • If the holes are formed in the dose it's an indication that the consistency of your dosa batter is right. You may add a little water to adjust. The holes in the dosa make it crispier and also the dosa would look great.
  • Sprinkle few drops of oil all over the dosa.
  • Keeping the gas on high flame all the while, cover the lid on dosa.
  • After 2-3 minutes, remove the lid and take out the dosa.
  • There is no need to flip and cook on the other side.
  • If you want your dosa crispier, keep the flame on the high and leave the dosa on the tawa till it turns very very light golden brown.
  • The Neerdose is generally prepared soft but the crispier version also tastes yum.

  • These dosas are to be eaten hot but if you are preparing more dosas all at a time, take care not to put the doses on one another else they will get stuck if you have made them soft.
  • No doubt the Neerdose are generally made in plain and simple version as above, I also make them in different versions to break the monotony.
  • You can mix any of the finely chopped greens like methi leaves, coriander leaves, Dill leaves, fried methi seeds powder, very very thin and nicely chopped onion or onion paste.
  • Or you can mix fine green chillies paste sauteed in tadka to give another twist.
  • Let your imagination run wild and make any other version.

And don't forget to let me know which one you liked the most.
