Tender coconut dosa is very tasty and good for health. It is one of the famous does in the coastal region. Tender coconut also called bannangayi in our local language.


My childhood was in rural areas so I am familiar with this recipe. In summer, tender coconut falls because of the hot or heavyweight of coconut. Tender coconut flesh is eaten directly as it is and it will be tasty too. But if the flesh is hard we cannot eat much directly and not enough to use for cooking. Necessity is the mother of invention, based on that idea this recipe is been prepared by our grandmothers. It is one of my favourite dosa. My mother-in-law is an expert in tender coconut dosa. To prepare tender coconut dosa we need fewer ingredients.

For the making of tender coconut dosa soaked dosa rice. Initially, we need to blend the tender coconut flesh, later add the soaked rice. As flesh needs to become smooth before adding the rice or else the pieces will remain. No need to add any other ingredients for the preparation of the batter. Mix the salt for the taste to the dosa batter. In a hot iron tawa pour some batter and spread it. Apply ghee or oil on the top for better taste.

The coconut flesh gives a good aroma while having the dosa.  This is the quick and instant recipe. We need not ferment the dosa batter. If batter made thick we can spread like other dosa. If dosa batter is watery, we can pour the dosa similar to neer dosa.

While serving the dosa, you can have chutney or sambar. But I prefer jaggery syrup for this tender coconut dosa. Jaggery syrup takes this dosa to another level for the taste buds. if you apply ghee on top, you can have it as it is.
