Instructions for making cucumber neer Dosa:

  1. To make cucumber neer dosa first wash and soak the rice in water for at least 5-6 hours. I usually soak it overnight.soak the rice for cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dose
  2. Drain the water and grind the rice along with cucumber, coconut and green chili using a mixer grinder until smooth. To grind the batter add the water, which is just enough to grind the rice. If you add more water then you won't be able to grind the rice well.grind the rice for cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dose
  3. The batter should be very smooth. Check the batter between 2 fingers and you should feel smooth. Transfer it to a container. Add in salt and required water to make the batter thin.

  4. Now take the cast iron pan (well seasoned) or non-stick pan. Keep the stove at high flame and wait till the pan becomes sizzling hot. To check whether it has reached the proper heat, sprinkle little water on the pan and the water shall sizzle and evaporate.

  5. Before making each neer dosa, stir the batter very well with the ladle. To make cucumber neer dosa you have to pour the dosa batter on the hot pan and it will spread on its own. Just have a look on the video given above. making cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dose

  7. Open the lid, reduce the flame, wait for 5 more seconds. If everything is perfect you can easily take out the neer dosa from the pan by using the flat spatula. If you feel dosa is not thin, try adding some more water. Or if dosa is sticking to the pan, mix little rice flour and then try again. Fold the Spicy neer dosa on the pan itself and serve it hot.cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dose making
