Welcome to nishamadhulika.com Today we are making momos. Momos belong to Tibetan and Nepali cuisine but now they have the taste of Indian flavors. Kids devour this recipe. Momos are prepared with numerous flavors and today we are making veg momos. Let’s start with the procedure of making veg momos. Let us start with kneading the dough for momos. We have 1 cup refined flour, to it add ¼ tsp salt. Now add water in small portions and knead soft dough. Grease your hands with some oil and knead the dough again until smooth. Dough is ready and we used less than half cup of water for kneading this much quantity of flour. 2 tbsp water is still left from ½ cup of water. Cover and keep the dough aside for 15 to 20 minutes to set and then start making the momos. Meanwhile let us prepare the stuffing for momos. For this, grate the cabbage first. We have 300 to 350 grams of cabbage and a small carrot. The carrot is rinsed and peeled. So, let us grate the carrot first. In case carrot is not available you use cabbage only. You can also add any other vegetable as well like peas, capsicum etc. Now let us grate the cabbage as well. We have thoroughly rinsed the cabbage and removed the leaves on the top. Now let us mix tempering to the grated cabbage. For this heat a pan and add 2 to 3 tsp oil to it. W hen the oil is hot, add grated ginger to it, followed by 1 finely chopped green chilly and sauté for a while. Mix this tempering to the grated cabbage now. We have slightly roasted the ginger and green chilly. Now add more than ½ tsp salt, 2 tbsp finely chopped green coriander and mix everything really well. Stuffing is now done and ready. 20 minutes are done and dough is ready as well. Grease you hands with some oil and knead the dough again. Now divide the dough into small portions. Roll out the dough lump like a long log and further divide into small lumps. Let us now start making the momos. Cover all the lumps to prevent them from drying. Take one dough lump at a time and roll giving it a round shape like this and then dust with dry flour. Roll out the dough ball into 2.5 to 3 inch diameter thin poori. If it sticks to the rolling plate, dust it again with the dry flour. Make sure that while rolling the poori is not too thin at the center. Run you rolling pin on the edges or sides of the poori. Let us roll out four pooris first then stuff them up. Lift one poori on your hand and top it with 1 to 1.5 tsp stuffing. Now fold the poori. You can fold the momos with numerous styles. First, fold it like this and stick together. Make another fold and stick to the first fold. Give another fold and stick to previous fold. Stick all the folds together like this. In the end, turn the folds like this and stick together. With this you will get round shaped momos. Keep it on the plate. For another type of fold which is easy and looks good as well Place the stuffing over the poori and give it a fold like this, sticking it together. Give another fold at some distance and stick to the first fold at little distance. Make third fold again at some distance and stick it together. Make the fourth fold at some distance like this and then give another fold and one more fold. We will have to make 4 to 5 folds to get this shape of the momos. Momos is ready, place it on the plate. Likewise prepare all the momos like this. Cover these momos with a cloth to prevent them from drying. We are done with stuffing all the momos, let us now cook them. We usually use momos maker for steaming them. Incase you don’t have the momo maker then take any vessel on which you easily place a sieve. To the vessel add 2 cups of water and place the momos on this sieve. Grease the sieve with some oil. Place the momos at some distance on the sieve When the water starts simmering, place the sieve over the vessel and cover it well. Now let the momos steam for 10 minutes. Keep the flame medium-high. 10 minutes are done and the momos are ready as well. There is change in the color of momos and appear shiny on the surface. Turn off the flame and take off the sieve from the vessel. Now transfer the momos to the plate. With this much dough 20 to 25 momos can be prepared. Steaming hot and super scrumptious momos are ready and making them is really easy. Making momos is little time consuming. So, if two people together make these momos together then it gets really easy and convenient. Momos are always served steaming hot. If you want to have these momos later then cook them for 7 to 8 minutes and keep aside covered with a cloth. Whenever you wish to serve the momos, steam them again for 2 to 3 minutes more. Place them in a sieve and steam again. Serve them piping hot. You can serve these lip smacking momos with red chilly chutney, less spicy tomato chutney and whit sauce.
