Neer dosa literally meaning Water dosa is a crpe prepared from rice batter. Rice is soaked in water for 3 to 4 hours. It is then ground to make a runny rice batter. Most types of dosa require the batter to be fermented for a few hours or even a day. However, fermentation can be skipped while preparing a neer dosa. Salt is added. A thin layer of batter is poured onto a heated flat griddle (tawa) greased with oil. The batter is spread with the base of a ladle or bowl to form a pancake. It is flipped to heat both crusts and removed from the griddle when the crust becomes dry. It is served hot.

This nearly weightless white dosa is nothing like its regular ghee laden, sambar dripping papery counterpart. If the kakori was created for the toothless nawab, the neer dosa must have been created for a great toothless king with a penchant for all things sweet. Closest to a crepe (even the Bengali pitha comes a close second), the neer dosa is prepared from a watery rice batter and is served with coconut milk or ravo (where grated coconut is added to melted jaggery and finished with some cardamom). This simple dosa is a perfect sweet ending to a simple meal and a light teatime snack. It is versatile enough to be eaten with coconuts chutneys or fish curries and is light enough to consume in copius quantities.

Best at: While in the land of the neer dosa, try Aditya Veg restaurant in Bangalore. Elsewhere in the country you could try a Naivedyam or a Swagath.
