Neer Dosa (Super Soft Lacy Dosa)
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.

  1. Wash and soak the rice for 4 hours or overnight if you want to prepare this for breakfast.
  2. Drain the water and grind the rice along with coconut and little water to a very smooth batter.
  3. Check the ground batter to ensure it is very smoothly ground.
  4. Remove the batter into a fairly larger bowl.
  5. Add the required amount of salt to the batter.
  6. Add water to the batter to form a very thin consistency.
  7. Now to prepare the neer dosa, heat up a non-stick dosa tava.
  8. The tava should be heated until it is very hot. Using a rounded ladle pour the batter on the tava.
  9. The batter will start to spread on its own, you can use the handle and swirl to give It a rounded shape.
  10. Fill the large gaps with little batter. Small holes will be created on its own to give a beautiful lacy appearance.
  11. Cook this for few seconds covered on only one side. The dosa will cook very quickly.
  12. Once the dosa is cooked, fold the dosa into half and then once again fold to give it a triangular shape.
  13. The traditional way to serve this is in a folded triangular form.
  14. For accompaniments and side dishes, the neer dosa can be served with any type of south indian chutneys, sambar, or any vegetarian or non-vegetarian curry.
