neer dosa recipe is a soft rice dosa or also known as water dosa. Learn how to make Mangalorean rice crepes.

neer dosa is also called Ari Dosa in Malayalam and made from a rice batter.

Nothing like this Neer Dosa to soothe your palate! Made with a simple batter of raw rice, this dosa has a soothing flavour and a mildly chewy texture that is very appealing. 

Neer Dose is made from 3 simple ingredients available in every Indian kitchen, rice, salt and oil. 

The batter for this neer dosai does not require any fermentation. Although simplicity is the highlight of the Neer Dosa, it requires a bit of expertise to prepare it perfectly.

Make sure the tava is really hot before pouring the batter, and ensure the dosa is cooked well before you try to remove it, else you will end up with bits and pieces instead of a nice, big dosa! 

I love making these neer dosa as they require no fermentation and are a family favourite on Sunday lunch. On my visits to Mangalore we used to have neer dosa every morning for breakfast. 

If you like a bit of spice, serve neer dosa with coconut chutney or vegetable stew, else combine it with sweetened coconut churna. As a variant, grind some grated coconut along with the rice, for an even softer dosa.

Tips for neer dosa 1. Make sure to use raw rice (variety) like any aged rice. Eg, Basmati or sona masuri to make Neer dosa. At the stores it is called dosa rice which is cheaper than regular rice. 2. Soak the rice well and blend it very smooth, this is the trick to achieve a soft and mouth melting Neer dosa. 3. The batter should be like thin chaas. 4. When cooking the neer dosa, remember to cover the dosa immediately or else the dosa might turn hard. 5. No need to cook neer dosa on both sides.
