Neer dosa is a beautiful and lacy crepe made using rice. Neer means water and the dosa is so called because the batter for neer dosa has the consistency of water, as in it is too flowy. Neer dosa is a good recipe as it called for minimal ingredients, however, it is not the simplest dosa to make. It took me a few attempts to get it perfect. But its texture and taste is worth attempting.
If you are new to neer dosa, for you it will be more about the belief than the recipe. Yes, you have to believe that so much water has to be added.

The recipe was kind to keep the ingredients part simple but with the method part, it has been tricky. There are plenty of recipes on the internet. Everyone is making neer dosas so easily. But it isn’t all that easy, especially for the first-timers. The most important thing is to get the correct consistency. The consistency of the batter should be as that of milk.
