Neer Dosa- 2 ingredient recipe 

Neer Dosa is a popular Mangalorean dish which is very simple and easy to make. I first heard of it while watching Samayal Samayal show in Vijay TV. Since then wanted to try it out. This recipe shows the addition of coconut to the rice before grinding which is optional. 

Neer means water. As this dosa is made by adding water to the rice batter it is named so. And also this batter needs no fermentation which makes it even more easy. It is so light and fluffy crepes that it will be very silky.

It is usually had for breakfast or tiffin along with chicken curry or it can also be enjoyed with any tasty chutney like coconut chutney, coriander chutney or kurma.
Ingredients (makes ~15 dosas)

1. Any white rice- 1 cup( preferably raw or Sona Masoori)

2. Grated coconut- 1/2 cup

3. Salt to taste
