Veggie Momo's

For the last day of this week I am here with a new dish Momo's or  dumplings.

 Momo were introduced from nepal, as Momo is a loanword from the newari mó:mo, a type of steamed bun. Momo have become a traditional delicacy in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, Darjeeling district and Ladakh. They are one of the most popular fast foods in many regions of the Indian Subcontinent people of Tibetan, Nepali or other Himalayan origins, and in places with a significant Tibetan and Nepalese diaspora, such as Assam, Delhi, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh, Shillong, Arunachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal.

Made this for the first time  and everyone at home liked it. I just used veggies as the filling, you can even use any kind of meat also. Here is the recipe for the yummy Momo's......

We need:


Cabbage chopped 1/4 cup
Beans chopped 1/4 cup
Spinach chopped 1/4 cup
Mushroom chopped 1/4 cup
Bell pepper chopped 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Black pepper powder 1/2 sp
Oil 2sps
Maida / All purpose flour  1 1/2 cup


Method:


Add salt and oil to flour and mix well.
Slowly add water to make a dough, just as poori dough.
Cover and keep aside.
In a small pan heat  1 spoon oil and add all the chopped veggies.
Add salt to taste and cook till 3/4 done.


Add soy sauce and pepper powder at the end and cook further for a minute.
Now make small poori's from the dough and fill it with 1 spoon filling.


You can add more filling, totally depends on the size of the poori.
Apply some water at the edges of the poori and close it with all sides to make a dumpling kind of thing as shown in the below picture.


Steam cook these momo's in the momo steamer or idly cooker or rice cooker.
Serve hot with soy sauce, chili sauce or ketchup.
