Pan Polo-Neer dosa

I got introduced to lots of recipes and dishes after my marriage and pan polo is one such dish.It is also called neer dosa.It is a leafy thin dosa made with raw rice and coconut.It does not require fermenting and can be made fresh out of the mixie.It does require soaking though.It can be served with a variety of chutneys,jaggery syrup,honey+ghee or non-veg gravies.It tastes great with sugar too..;-)

Pan Polo - Neer Dosa


Raw rice - 1 cup
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Oil - as required to grease


Soak raw rice overnight or for at least 4 hours.
Grind well with coconut to get a smooth paste.
Add water as required,the batter should be slightly more thinner than the regular dosa batter. Place a greased dosa pan on flame.
Pour the batter on the tawa with a circular movement.Spread it well.
Cook it on one side only.
Serve hot.
