Dosa / Dose is the popular common breakfast item in typical south Indian Kitchen. It is prepared using many different ways and with different ingredients. Here I have Neer Dosa / Neer Dose recipe, instead of rice we are using Foxtail millet/Navane here.
Millets believed to be good for diabetic patients since it releases the glucose slowly. All millets are non glutinous grains.
- 1 cup foxtail millet/navanakki
- Around ½ tsp salt
- ¼ to ½ cup grated coconut
- 2 to 2 ¼ cup water
Also we need:
- Iron Tawa and
- Oil to make the dose
- Wash and soak the millet for 3 to4 hours with 2 cups of water.
- Then drain the water and grind the soaked millet along with coconut, salt and little water to fine consistency. Add enough water to get this consistency.
- Transfer it to a bowl or pan, add water to get thin batter. I used around 2 cups of water.
To make the Neer Dosa:
- Grease the tawa and heat the skillet on medium high heat.
- Once the tawa is hot enough, put the oil generously on the tawa spread it with a spoon.
- Take a ladle of batter (mix the batter each time you make the dosa) and simply spread it all over the tava.
- Put oil on top and cover the lid. Let it cook for a minute.
- Once dose is done remove it from the tawa on to plate using a turner.
- To make another one, again put oil on the skillet and follow the same procedure.
- Eat this Dose with chutney, banana seekarane, or mango seekarane.
