Neer Dosa | Biriyani Rice Neer Dosa


Neer Dosa is a tasty and very popular breakfast dish from the Indian state of Karnataka. This is a variant from the usual dosas recipes that need fermentation. In Tulu language ‘Neer’ means water and you can conclude and term this dish as ‘water dosa’. These dosas are so named due to the thin and watery consistency of the batter which is quite different from the usual dosa batter. Neer Dosa is very easy to prepare as you do not need to set the batter aside for fermentation. What is required is you just need to grind the soaked biriyani rice with grated coconut to get a thin watery batter. Usually Neer Dosa requires raw rice but I have introduced a variation here by using basmati rice. I confirm that biriyani rice makes the dosa super soft and thin that simply melts in your mouth. This is what makes Biriyani Rice Neer Dosa unique and special due to its spongy texture.

I am sure you are going to love this fluffy, thin and lacey Neer Dosa that can be accompanied with any vegetarian or non vegetarian curry dish of your choice. Neer Dosa with beef curry tastes excellent. Another vital point and specialty of Neer Dosa is that you require just a handful of ingredients – rice, coconut, cooked rice, water and salt. These is an apt gluten free vegan breakfast dish that is ideal for health. This is your perfect brunch that needs to be added in your menu. I make this often for my family. These lacey fluffy dosas pair well with coconut chutneys too making a delicious breakfast option. You can pack Neer Dosa in your kid’s tiffin box too. Since these dosas are light, you can easily devour 4-5 dosas in one sitting. So while preparing the batter plan accordingly. You can discover a well detailed Biriyani Rice Neer Dosa here.
