  1. Love Neer dosa. We call it Paan poley. With coconut an almost-luxury item, we’ve tried making it with just rice also. Comes out okay, tho the taste isn’t as terrific.


    1. Hi Jaya , wow nice to know ! Yeah adding coconut takes the dish a top notch. I have also made this using the coconut milk that we get in the stores , when fresh coconut is not available. It taste good too 😃
