Rice- 2 cups
Shredded coconut– 1 cup
White sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Water- as needed
Salt- to taste
Soak rice in water for 4-5 hours. Grind it into smooth paste with shredded coconut adding enough water. (We add coconut to enhance the taste of dose) Allow it to ferment overnight (optional) add sesame seeds, salt and mix it well. Make sure the batter is very thin, (a little thicker than milk ) adjust the consistency by adding water. Heat the griddle on medium heat. A very thin layer of batter is spread on the griddle (spread it as lightly as you can, which is the secret of getting a good neer dose) Grease with oil on the sides of the dosa, cover and wait for 25-30 seconds. Flip it to the other side, wait for few seconds (4-5 secs) and remove from the griddle. Enjoy the dose with coconut chutney or any other spicy side dish of your choice. Many enjoy eating the dose with honey, coconut mixed with jaggery (1:1 proportion) or any other pudding.

Sounds delicious! The combination of white rice and coconut seems like a tasty idea.

Very new dish to me and looks very yummy. I must try this.
I wanted to have this since a very long time, but nobody in my family knew how to make it. Thanks a ton for posting and I will be soaking my rice rightaway.
Your neer dose is bringing neeru in my mouth. Very tempting. Keep up the good work.
