Recipe – Neer Dosa / Indian Rice Pan cake

 

Prep time: 18 hours

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 8-10 dosas

Ingredients

  • Rice: 1 Cup
  • Coconut, powder or grated or chopped: ¼ cup
  • Salt: 1 ½ Teaspoon or to taste
  • Cooked plain rice or soaked poha: 1/4 cup
  • Water: As required

Method

  • Wash dal and rice 2-3 times. Soak the mix in water for 5-6 hours.
  • Drain the water, add soaked poha or cooked rice and coconut to the mix and grind the mixture to a smooth paste. Not too thick, not too thin paste. Add little water while grinding if required.
  • Transfer the batter to a bowl, cover it and let it ferment for another 12 hours. The batter will increase in volume.
  • Add salt. Mix well.
  • Add more water to make a very thin flowing consistency batter. Thinner than usual dosa batter.
  • Heat a non-sticky pan in very high heat, pour 1 ladle full of batter. Hold the pan high and move the pan immediately to spread the batter all around the pan to thinnest circle possible. Drizzle little oil over it. Cover the pan for 2 minutes. Remove the cover and fold the dosa in half and 2 halves. No need to flip.
  • Serve Hot.
  • You may make it in mini uttapam maker pan as well.
