veg-momos-recipe
       This is the first time I am trying veg momos. Tasted for first time as well. I had a wish to try this ever since my SIL posted this. But have been postponing trying this due to various reasons. Now since a reader requested this recipe in my recipe request page, I thought of posting it. Since this is the first time, I took some time to make this. But its quite easy. For me making a post became a pressure today, otherwise its easy. Perfect for your kids and your family. Its really delicious and I bet you wont stop eating just one. I have tried this with maida, you can also try this with wheat flour.
The stuffing I made is as the same as my spring roll stuffing, except I added chopped garlic today. Otherwise the same. Excuse the shape and size of the momos ;)

Veg Momos recipe

Indian Breakfast
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 12

Ingredients

All purpose flour/ maida  3/4 cup 
Water  As needed 
Salt  3/4 tsp 
Oil  2 tsp 

For stuffing

Finely chopped cabbage 1 cup
Finely chopped Carrot 1/4 cup
Finely chopped garlic 1 tblsp
Spring onion 4 –5 sprigs
sugar 1/4 tsp
Pepper (black) 1/2 tsp
Soya sauce 1 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Oil 1 tblsp

 

Method

  1. Mix flour, salt and oil  in a bowl and add water to make a smooth pliable dough. Just like our poori dough. Keep aside covered.
  2. Heat a pan with oil, add garlic, and finely chopped white part of the spring onion. Give a stir in high flame. Add the chopped veggies, sugar and fry in high flame for a minute.
  3. Add salt, pepper, soy sauce and mix well. Lastly add finely chopped green part of the spring onion and mix for a minute in medium flame. Switch off and keep aside.
  4. I rolled the dough into a big disc and used a big lid to cut into smaller discs. After that I again roll to make it more thin. Keep some stuffing we prepared in the middle.
  5. Fold it to make momo shapes. refer my video – click here. Though I have not made it perfect, it can help first timers like me :)
  6. Steam it in a steamer spaced properly, for 5 minutes.

Notes


  • Adding oil in the  dough gives softer outer layer.
  Serve hot with hot chilli sauce or you can try this tomato garlic dip.

  10. True Bharathy! Super pressure post :D haha
    Thank you all for your comments :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nups,

    Yes if you have a pressure cooker, fill it with 3/4 cup water, then place a broad bowl(height should be less)filled with water as well. Now place a greased plate over it and arrange the momos over it. If you have a perforated plate, then it would be more apt for it.No need to add the weight valve.Just steam for 10 minutes. Even you can follow the same inside an electric cooker or even in a big kadai. Electric cooker has one accessory now a days. You can try in that.

  44. If you place the plate with dumplings after the water in kadai starts boiling, 4 - 5 minutes is enough. Over cooked in the sense the outer layer was hard?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Raji.. picture perfect momos :) Props are super cool. Those plastic cubes - are they salt and pepper??

    Recently i read about momos in another blog.. chk this link:

  57. hey Raji..i tried the momos today as evening snack and it turned out to be great..thanks for the recipe..one tip i would like to give..if the momos become dry on steaming..one can add a few drops of oil in the water which is used for steaming ..this way momos wont dry up..

    ReplyDelete
  58. Is the soy sauce really necessary??? Or can we ignore it because its just one spoon only no??

    ReplyDelete
  59. Feel free to skip, the Chinese flavor may miss.

    ReplyDelete

  61. hi can i use idli steamer or an electric rice cooker to make momos?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any steamer will work. Electric rice cooker has an optional tray to steam, so u can use that.

  62. Hi raji,

    I plan to do this for my girls b day party, can I shape d momos n keep it covered for an hour or two before steaming? It's best served hot right? If it becomes cold, the outer cover becomes rubbery! Pls help me...

  71. Hi,I have tried this...but the outer layer was very hard...and I used idli plates for steaming....is it bcoz of that?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It ant be coz of idli plate, may be the water content in your dough was less. Use oil while preparing the dough, it helps to bring it soft.

  72. Thanks for ur reply...will try this next time....

  74. Hi Raks ... i am a great fan of your recipes, i have tried out lot of your recipes. as you have mentioned in the recipe can i just use wheat flour instead of all purpose flour?? and if so do i have to make any changes while steaming or while rolling out the dough ???

  79. I have question that if we don't have momos steamer then how can we steam it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you have a pressure cooker, place the momos in a plate. Add some water in pressure cooker, place a vessel and the plate with momos over that. Cover with lid and steam for 15 mins. Do not use the pressure regulator.
