I first heard of the Neer Dosa on a television cookery show, since then I have been waiting to try this at home. I was pretty intrigued by the idea of a quick, no-fermentation dosa that looked white as snow, soft, and like a lacy handkerchief folded twice neatly into a triangular shape.
Better late than never, so very soon made this awesome soft pancake or crepe or dosa called Neer Dosa. Neer means water and the batter for this dosa is of a very thin consistency. The origin of this neer dosa traces back to the region of Malnad in Karnataka.
With only 2 ingredients; rice and coconut, and of course salt and plenty of water this dosa can be planned and made easily as no ingredient purchase list, grocery shopping is needed.
Though a minimum soaking time of 2 to 3 hours is sufficient before grinding the rice, I soaked the rice overnight so as to prepare the neer dosa for breakfast.
There are many side dishes or accompaniments that you can serve with this and there are varied and popular spicy curries that is served with the neer dosa in different regions of Karnataka. But even a simple coconut chutney and sambar tastes good.
