Neer Dosa

We went to Sangeetha last week and saw Neer Dosa on menu. I knew that this was Mangalore style dosa, but my MIL said it was similar to Kali Kanji Dosa which is prepared in Nagercoil. Her SIL is from there and every saturday they used to have this dosa with Onion Tomato Chutney. This is the first time we tried this at home.

Raw Rice - 2 cup
Shredded Coconut - 1.5 cup
Salt to taste

Soak raw rice for an hour and grind along with coconut, salt to a fine dosa batter. Add lots of water until the batter is watery and running.
After storing the batter, before cleaning the blender, add some water and store the water in a container.
Heat the water and when bubbles are formed, you will see the liquid in a shining. Add this to the batter and mix well. The batter will thicken a bit.
Heat a tawa and pour the batter first along the outer edge and then on the inside. Dont spread the batter like for a usual dosa. This dosa will be pale white in color, not brown like the usual one.
Cook on both sides and serve hot with Onion Tomato Chutney.

Bon Appetit!!
