Neer Dosa
Neer Dosa | Source

Hailing from India, neer dosas are thin, soft, fluffy, and lacy crepes that are prepared with rice or rice flour. They are very quick and easy to make, as they call for just four ingredients. For this recipe, we are using rice flour instead of rice.

Neer dosa is also called water dosa as the batter is water-thin. Serve these dosas with coconut chutney or onion tomato chutney. The recipe video link for the onion tomato chutney is included in the video below. Do try this recipe and share your experience in the comments.

Tips for making great neer dosa:

  • The batter should be very thin for it to spread quickly. The desired result is a dosa laced with small holes.
  • The pan should be very hot when you pour in the batter.
  • Stir the batter well each time before your pour it in the pan.
  • These dosas are sticky when hot, so place them without touching one another as you transfer them from the pan. After they've cooled down they will be less sticky, and you will be able to stack them.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 7-8 crepes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 2 1/2 cups (or as needed) water
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • oil as needed

Instructions

  1. Prepare the dosa batter by adding water to the rice flour and stirring until there are no lumps. The batter should be watery, so add as much water as needed.
  2. Heat a tawa or nonstick pan on medium heat; then brush a little oil all over it.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir the batter well, then pour a ladleful or more in the pan until it covers the entire surface of the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the dosa when its edges start to leave the pan surface. Free the dosa all around, then make a triangular fold on the tawa itself. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Prepare rest of the dosas in the same way. This recipe will make 7-8 neer dosa depending on the size of the pan you are using.
  6. Serve hot with coconut chutney or onion tomato chutney.

      The difference is in the ingredient and the consistency of the batter, Peggy. Thank you.

      I have no idea, Doris. This crepe is quite soft and dotted with holes large and small you have to take that into consideration. You could give it a try and see. Thank you.

      It sounds like the directions for rice crepes are much the same as those made with regular flour. I used to make crepes, but have not done so for some time. Thanks for the idea.

      It is indeed a very simple recipe, Pamela. Rice flour is easily available at Indian grocery stores. Thank you.

      Rajan, you are magnificent! I've been looking for a crepe recipe made from gluten-free flour, and this rice flour recipe looks like it will do very nicely. Just one thing, one of my favorite foods is crepes with strawberry and cream filling. Do you think this will work for that?

      I have never seem rice flour in the stores where I shop so I would probably have to go to a specialty story to find it. This recipe seems simple otherwise. Thanks, Rajan.

      Rajah, after the tomato onion chutney, you come up with this rice crepe. Great! It is a perfect match. Among your data base of. Organic Rajah Juice, which should go best with the meal? I would not hesitate to make this meal as a breakfast or dinner. Thanks for sharing.

      I like rice floor chilas (thick dosa type things) with dry potato bhaji. You have innovated something soft and thinner. Should definitely try it.
