Neer Dosa | The Best 3 Ways Of Neer Dosa

Unlike other South Indian dosa recipes, this neer dosa does not require any lentils and needs only three main ingredients: rice, water, and salt. This is the version I have shared in this recipe and in my video.

  • Soak the rice for 4-6 hours or overnight. Wash the soaked rice and blend it in a smooth paste with water. I have included a short video clip to show how it looks.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Place a cast iron skillet over medium heat and grease the surface with oil.
  • When it’s hot, hold the batter about 2 inches away from skillet and pour the batter as I show in the video clip. The dose must be thin. So pour it very lightly with no layers.
  • Cover the lid for few seconds and when it appears pale white, it is cooked. Remove the dosa from the skillet.


If you think your dosa batter is very thin, add a little rice flour to the batter and mix well. Neer Dosa is ready! Serve it hot with a side of coconut chutney!
