dosa, gluten free crepes recipe is a part of Southern Karnataka
cuisine. Easy to make and filling, it needs just four ingredients. It
can be served at breakfast as well as any other meal.
'Neer' means water in Kannada, Sanskrit languages. Neer dose literally means 'watery dosa'. The dosa batter is very thin and watery, hence the name.
Some south Indian restaurants serve this traditional dish as it is very popular. Neeru dosa batter needs no fermentation like the usual dosa batter. So it takes less time and preparation.
Neer dose can be served at room temperature. It is convenient when you want to serve to many people at the same time as you can make it in advance.
Neer dosa is soft and thin. If you like your dosas crisp and thick, you may not be so keen to try neer dosa. I assure you, you will change your mind once you try this neer dose.
I usually like my dosas crisp. So the first time I made this neer dose at my daughters suggestion, (she had tasted it at her friend's place), I was not very hopeful of liking this. But once I made this, the ease of making the dosa batter and the taste made me like these dosas.
If you have some curry leftover and are wondering what to eat it with, neeru dosa is the perfect accompaniment.
You may use any short grain raw rice in this recipe.

Method to make neer dosa - gluten free crepes
The first one or two dosas will tell you if your batter is of right consistency.
Heat a seasoned tava / nonstick flat pan. Once the pan is heated, keep the flame medium.
Spread a little oil on the tava. Stir the batter and pour a laddleful of batter on the tava.
Tilt the tava in circular motion to spread the batter in a circle. As the batter is watery, it should spread easily. If it doesn't spread easily, add a little more water for the next dosa.
You may cover the pan or leave it open. Covering up may cook the dosa fast and will keep it soft.
Once the top of dosa looks cooked(it will change color from pure white to dull white) and dry, fold it in half and then in to quarter(if you wish).
There is no need to flip it and cook on the other side but if you wish, you may cook the other side for a few seconds.
Take out on a plate or in a wide container with lid.
Keep covered till serving time. Or you may serve it immediately.
Make all the dosas in the same way. remember to stir the batter every time you take out a laddleful of batter.
Serving suggestions for neer dosa - Gluten free crepes
You may serve a little ghee, butter or plain yogurt with this dosa.
Serve it with your favorite pickle or dry chutney powder.
If you like it, serve it with a favorite jam or marmalade.
You may stuff these crepes with chopped bananas with a little honey. Tastes wonderful.
This dosa does not stick to the pan when the batter consistency is right and the pan is well heated.
If it sticks, check your batter consistency. You may need to add more water. Traditionally these dosas are white in color. Even when they brown, they taste great. They may brown if your tava is too hot or you have cooked them longer than necessary. I like them a bit browned.
Stir the batter before making every dosa. The rice flour tends to settle at the bottom of the bowl.
You may or may not add a few drops of oil on the sides of dosa.
Usually these dosas do not stick to the pan and do not need added oil, but the choice is yours. Oil adds to the taste.
Instead of fresh grated coconut, you may add coconut milk, in powder or liquid form, to the batter.
Make sure, the batter is not
