Neeru Dose

Neeru Dose is typically Dakshina Karnataka (South Karnataka) breakfast. Neeru in kannada means "Water". Prety much a very easy breakfast. This dosa does not need any fermentation and not much time is needed you can have it as evening snacks. Kai (coconut) chutney or khara (spicy) chutney will go with this. The consistency of this dosa is very thin. The only prepartion to make is to soak the rice about 3 to 5 hrs before.

Hi Vanamala,

I came across your blog and saw that you healthy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Stonyfield Farm makes Oikos Organic Greek yogurt which can be used in a variety of ways while cooking – in baking, as a substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise, in dips and sauces and to create tasty low-fat dishes. Greek yogurt is strained, making it thicker and more versatile in recipes than regular yogurt. Oikos is organic, which means it's made without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and it's made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones (rBST). We feel that organic is not only better for you, but better for the planet as well.

I would love to send you coupons for Oikos to give it a try. If you're interested, send me an email at and let me know where to send them.

Take care,
