Neer Dosa

- submitted by Dahlia on 05-11-2011
(Varati, Coconut Dosa, Pan Polo, Soyi Polo, Rice Crepes)
Ingredients
Rice - 2 cups
Grated Coconut - 1 cup (preferably tender coconut)
Salt - to taste 
 
Method
1. Wash and soak the rice for 2-3 hours. 
2. Drain and grind it to a smooth paste along with grated coconut. 
3. Pour water and thin out the dosa batter. The batter should be very very watery. Add required salt.
4. Heat a dosa pan on medium low heat. The tawa should not be very hot.
5. Pour a ladleful of batter in the tawa and rotate the tawa so that the batter spreads evenly into a very thin crepe.
6. Drizzle few drops of oil, cover with a lid and cook on low flame for a minute or two.
7. Gently remove the dosa and fold it into a triangle. 
8. This dosa remains very soft for a long time. So you can make this well ahead of time for parties, for guests or picnics.
 
Serving Suggestions

     - In Karnataka, neer dosa is typically had with some chutney (coconut chutney, tomato chutney etc.) for breakfast.
     - It is also commonly had with fish curry or prawns curry.
     - It also goes very well with chicken curry, egg kurma or any other veg kurmas or stew.
     - It is also quite common to have neer dosa with Rasayana (made with some kind of fruit like banana, mango or orange mixed in coconut milk and sweetened with jaggery or sugar).
     - Some people also like to have this with some grated coconut sweetened with sugar or jaggery.
 
Variations

      - A similar dish is made among the muslims in south tamil nadu and south kerala called 'Paalaada'. In Paalaada, coconut milk is used instead of grated coconut.

Hi Heather, Here are a few Goan recipes http://simpleindianrecipes.com/GoanCuisine.aspx. Will be adding more in the coming days.

Goan cuisine is really very unique. I love many dishes. I had a Goan friend who used to share her recipes but now she's a bit busy. I'll be updating once I test and try a recipe.
You are welcome to share your special recipes too.

    I found many easy to make tiffin recipes. I shall be trying them out. I want to know if vermicelli roasted at home tastes better than the bought out variety

    Hi Meera, Do try out the recipes. About roasted vermicelli, I feel the taste does not differ in the final product. It saves so much time though.
