Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Neer DosaUnlike the regular dosa, Neer Dosa doesn’t need much soaking time, cooking time and fermentation time. So, you can have it whenever you are in a mood for it. The texture is smooth and very soft, they melt in your mouth. Even kids enjoy this Neer Dosa. Serve it with Chutney/ Sambar or Chutney Powder of your choice.





Serves 2 to 3
Preparation time – 5 mins
Soaking time – 1 hr
Cooking time – 1 min for each dosa.

  • Short Grain Rice(wash, soak in fresh water for 1 hr) – 1 Cup
  • Coconut Milk/ shredded Coconut – 1/2 Cup
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – few drops for each dosa
  • Water – 1 1/2 Cups to make the batter thin.


  • Drain the water in which the rice has been soaking. Add the soaked rice to the blender with half of the coconut milk and grind to a paste for 2 mins.
  • Then add in remaining coconut milk, salt and grind to a fine and smooth paste.
  • Take the batter into a bowl and dilute with 1 1/2 cups of water. Check for the salt and add if needed. Mix well and the batter is ready.
  • Heat the non stick pan, add few drops of oil and smear it well with a paper towel to take off the excess.
  • Pour in couple of ladlefuls of batter onto the pan and cover to cook for 30 – 50 secs on medium heat until the top surface dries out.
  • Add few drops of oil on other side. If needed flip the dosa and cook on the other side for 10 secs.
  • Fold the dosa at the center and fold again to shape them in semicircles.
  • Do the same thing with the remaining batter.
  • Serve hot with chutney/ Sambar or Chutney Powder.

    Hi Sruthi,

    I was looking for the neer dosa recipe, and there you have it. Now I got to try it!

    I have a few questions:
    1. Can we use dry coconut flakes and omit the coconut milk?
    2. Can we make ahead the batter (for eg. previous night)?

      Hi Sahmaara,

      You can use dry coconut flakes too and you can make the batter previous night and make dosas in the morning. They turn out even better.
