Spicy neer dosa or masale neer dose or uppu-huli dose is a very tasty breakfast recipe from Mangalore region of Karnataka. "Neeru" translates to water in Kannada language. So "masale neer dose" translates to spicy water dosa and "uppu-huli neer dose" translates to salt n sour water dosa in Kannada language. Spicy neer dosa are thin crispy instant dosas prepared using rice, red chili, grated coconut, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, tamarind and salt. I have ridgegourd dosa and pathrode recipes on this website, which makes use of same spices.
Spicy neer dosa is a quick and easy dosa recipe but if you want to prepare real thin, crispy and quality dosa then you need a bit of experience. The trick lies in adding right amount of water to the batter and the art of making dosa. The griddle or pan and the type of rice used also plays a major role in preparing thin and crispy dosas.
