Neer (Bariakki) Dosa with Coconut and Jaggery

Normally Dosa makes you thirsty for a long time. But Neer Dosa is just the opposite. With lot of water content already in it, neer dosa keeps your belly cool. Even the coconut in it makes you cool. The batter preparation is also cool. The jaggery coconut mixture made as side dish is the coolest one. So everything is just cool cool cool.
If prepared well, this Dosa can be had even after 4-5 hours after baking, when the dosa is not hot. When you eat this Dosa, you feel less thirsty. But unlike the normal dosas, you can’t fill your stomach with neer dosa by having just 3 Dosas or so.

Neer Dosa Ingredients:

  • Dosa Rice – 3 cups
  • Coconut Grated – 1 cup
  • Salt

Coconut and Jaggery Ingredients :

  • Coconut Grated – 1 cup
  • Jaggery – 3/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp (optional)

How To Make Neer Dosa Batter:

  1. Wash Rice and then soak the same in water and leave for 4-5 hours. Grind Rice and grated Coconut in a mixer grinder until you obtain a smooth paste. Add salt and 1 glass of water to it. The batter should be much thinner than that of a normal Dosa batter.

How to Make Neer Dosa :

  1. Heat the normal Dosa Tawa (One can’t use non-stick pan for Neer Dosa). Grease the Tawa with oil, spread the batter on it as thin as possible. Close the lid. The dosa is quite thin and unlike the normal dosa, this dosa should be baked on only one side. Hence, do not turn the dosa. Once baked, fold the dosa and serve with Chutney or Coconut Jaggery mixture or with Pickle.

How To Make Coconut and Jaggery:

  1. Hand mix grated Coconut and powdered Jaggery well. Add cardamom powder and leave for 10-15 mins so that the Jaggery melts and mixes well with coconut. One can have this only with Neer Dosa.
  2. If prepared well, this Dosa can be had even after 4-5 hours after baking, when the dosa is not hot. When you eat this Dosa, you feel less thirsty. But unlike the normal dosas, you can’t fill your stomach with neer dosa by having just 3 Dosas or so.

  3. Hi hema….
    The neer dosa turned out well but the only problem was that once the batter was poured on the dosa tawa it was spluttering everywhere….. It didnt quite get the perfect round shape like in the picture you have here……….. Can you guess what would be the problem?
