Recipe Notes

  • Neer dosa can be prepared using only rice. In this recipe I have used coconut as this gives a nice aroma. The batter should be very fine paste.
  • The batter consistency is very important. Thin batter gives good thin soft dosa. In this recipe, I have taken one cup of fine batter paste and added two cups of water or slightly more. Experience gives a good idea of how much water to be added.
  • Mix the batter every time dosa is prepared because the batter tends to settle down.
  • Splash the batter on skillet on low flame whereas cook the dosa on high flame.
  • Always close the lid and prepare the dosa.
  • Do not overcook the dosa and it should not brown like other dosa.
  • Cool each dosa after preparing and stack them as this prevents the dosa from sticking to one another.
