Serves 5
Portion size: 4 each (18- 20 pcs)

Rice 150 g (Surati or Kollam)
Water 2 cups
Salt as prescribed by your dietician.
Oil as required


  • Soak rice overnight with enough water.
  • Next morning drain rice and grind it in a smooth paste.
  • Add very little water while grinding, 1 to 2 teaspoon at a time. If too much of water is added, you will not be able to grind the rice into smooth paste.
  • Transfer the batter in to a serving bowl.
  • Add twice the amount of water as to the batter quantity. The batter should be thin and free flowing.
  • Heat iron cast pan or non-stick pan. Grease the pan with enough oil.
  • Stir the batter well every time you pour a dosa on the pan.
  • Take a ladle full of batter and pour it on a greased pan to make thin dosa.
  • If dosa does not show pours add some water, similarly if you think the batter is too thin you can add little rice flour. Mix well.
  • Spread the batter evenly and fill the large pours with batter if any.
  • Cover the dosa with the lid for few seconds or until cooked. Do not flip it. Neer dosa has to be cooked from only one side.
  • Remove the dosa from the pan and fold it triangular shapes as shown in the pics.
  • Neer Dosa can be served with chutney, chicken curry and curry vegetables.
