Neer dose

Neer dose is a very common breakfast in Udupi region. I can describe it as very thin, light and delicious crepes. “Neer” literally means water. The key ingredient being rice, is very simple and I bet anyone who eats it, will definitely keeping asking for more!

Ingredients:

Rice- 2 cups

Shredded coconut– 1 cup

White sesame seeds- 1 tsp

Water- as needed

Salt- to taste

Preparation:

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.
