Craving for momos this lockdown? Make them at home quite easily! They’re simple to make and absolutely delicious. You can also pre-prep by making the dough in the morning and stuffing later. The dough can be refrigerated for 3-4 hours.

For the Momo chutney, I’ve used a chilli garlic sauce but you can make it with some tomatoes, garlic, onions, paprika, salt and pepper.

Method/ How to make Veg Momos :

For the momos dough :

⚡️ Mix the maida, salt and oil with your hands first to make a crumbly mix. 

⚡️ Now add water little by little and make a medium dough. It should not be too hard or too soft. Knead properly for 7-8 mins. 

⚡️ Cover the dough with a wet cloth and leave for an hour aside. 

For the Momo stuffing :

⚡️ Heat oil in a pan. Add garlic, ginger, onions and sauté until golden brown with a pinch of salt. 

⚡️ Add the capsicum, cabbage, carrots, spring onion greens and sauté on high flame for 2-3 mins.

⚡️ Add the soya sauce, chilli sauce, vinegar. Mix and cook. Cool mix at room temp before stuffing. 

For making the momos : 

⚡️After an hour, remove the cloth and knead the dough for 2-3 mins. Make equal sized small balls. 

⚡️ Roll each ball into a thin circle with thin edges. Place around a tbsp of the mix in the centre of each circle and then pinch edges to form a Momo as shown. 

⚡️ Make 6-7 such momos. Meanwhile grease a steamer with oil. Heat it for 5 mins and then place momos on it. Cover and cook for 8-10 mins or until momos are translucent and cooked. You can poke one with a toothpick and see if it comes out clean, the momos are cooked.

⚡️ Serve hot with some Momo chutney/any sauce of your choice.
