  • 1 teaspoon ginger finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon green chillies finely chopped
  • 2 small carrot grated

  • 2 medium sized onions finely chopped
  • Salt according to taste
  • black pepper powder
  • pinch of Asafoetida
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

Instructions

Kneading dough for momos

  • To make Momos flour, first of all add the flour to the vessel and then add half a teaspoon of salt and a spoon of oil to it.
  • Mix them all with hands.
  • Now add a little water in the flour and knead the flour. And keep in mind that the dough has to be kneaded soft.
  • After kneading the dough, apply a little oil and keep it covered for 30 minutes.

Method of making stuffing of momos

  • Heat a cooking pan and add oil.
  • Then add asafoetida, green chillies, and ginger and fry a little.
  • Then add the onion and soften it slightly. Do not cook them too much.
  • Then add carrot and cabbage to it and soften it slightly. You can also add capsicum to it. Mix them all well.
  • Then turn off the gas.
  • Add black pepper powder, soy sauce, and vinegar to it and mix them well.
  • When the mixture cools down, add salt to it. The salt is added later so that the vegetable does not release water after adding salt.

Method for preparing wrapping for momos

  • First kneed the dough for few seconds. Now we will roll the dough very thin by placing it on slab or rolling board. You can also use a little dry flour to roll out the dough.
  • Now with the help of a bowl, you can cut small round balls out of it. Repeat the same process. And take out all the rounds in a separate plate.

Filling stuffing and give shapes to momos

  • Giving Momos the right shape is not a difficult task. You will learn how to make it in 2–3 times.
  • Now pour the stuffing into the momos wrapping with the spoon.
  • Then wet the edges with water and mix them all together like you do when you make Bharma Paratha. For this you can also see my video in which I have made momos in different sizes.

Method of Steaming Momos

  • If you do not have a steamer, then heat the water in the pot.
  • Put a steel sieve in it and apply some oil on top of it.
  • Put momos in a sieve and cover with a plate and allow it to steam on low heat for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, grab them and remove them with tongs.
