Pan Polo / Neer Dose

Pan Polo / Neer Dose is a Mangalorean Dish. We get the best rice flour in Sinagapore, which is so fine that there is no need to soak the rice grains and to grind it. Thus this is the easiest dosa and very simple and quick to make. It is instant recipe and yet very tasty. Good for morning breakfast or with evening tea.

This is called 'Pan Polo' in Konkani and 'Neer Dose' in Kannada. 'Neer' means water and 'Dose' means Dosa. Thus this dosa is so thin like a paper. Normally, this dish is made by soaking the rice grains for atleast 4 hours or overnight and grinding it with coconut to form a very thin batter with no fermentation process involved. Can be served with any type of chutneys, pickles, butter, sambar, kodel, gashi, veg or non-veg gravy, honey and ghee or with sugar. 


NOTE :
  • Optional - Can use grated coconut if needed. This will make the dosa soft. I am adding 2 tbsp coconut to make it more soft add 1/2 coconut.
  • Adding Cumin seeds gives you nice flavor.
  • Batter should be very thin like a buttermilk to get the lacy holes. Keep checking the consistency of the batter every now and then and add little water and salt if the batter becomes thick.
  • Use non-stick pan and it should be heated well before spreading the batter on it. After spreading the batter, roast the dosa in medium or low flame to give crispy touch.
  • No need to roast on the other side as we are roasting it on low or medium flame.
  • Adding ghee to the dosa will give nice taste and have it hot for the better results.
  • Can also use coconut oil.
  • As we have used the coconut, there are more chances of dosa to get sticked to tava. So use non-stick pan or iron griddle.
