'Neer Tella literally meaning water dosa in Tulu Language is a crêpe prepared from rice batter. Neer dosa is a delicacy from Tulu Nadu region and part of Udupi - Mangalorean cuisine.[1][2][3]


Neer is the word for water in Tulu.[4] Neer dosa is called panpale in Konkani.[5]

Unlike other dosas neer dosa is known for its simple preparation method and lack of fermentation. Usually neer dosa is served with coconut chutney, sambar, saagu and non vegetarian curries like chicken, mutton, fish and egg curry.[5]


Even though many variations exist for Neer Dosa batter, the two basic ingredients common to all of them are just soaked rice (or rice flour) and little salt.[5] The most common optional ingredient is finely grated fresh coconut (roughly one sixth to one eighth the volume of the un-soaked rice) which is wet-ground together with the soaked rice into a very smooth batter.


Batter used for Neer dosa

There is no requirement for fermentation of the rice in order to prepare Neer dosa. The rice needs to be soaked for at least 2 hours. After a quick wash and a drain the rice needs to be ground by adding water in order to get very fine batter. Additional amount of water can be added based on the thickness of the batter and then salt is added for taste. Finally the batter is used to prepare the dosa.[3]
