Neer Dosa is Mangalore/Udupi dish. It is one of the popular, simple, easy and healthy Breakfast of South India. The word ‘Neer’ means water. A thin, crisp dosa made with a runny rice batter. It is very light and is known to be a Kannada delicacy. It got its name because of its batter consistency. Unlike other Dosas, its batter has water consistency and does not require fermentation.

Rice is the main ingredient of Neer Dosa. I have added some shredded coconut to get Kerala Taste, but it is optional. But I like the coconut added recipe.

Lets cook! Step by step process  for making Neer Dosa!
