How to prepare Vegetable Momos -Nepal snack dish

Here's a popular Nepali snack, that's probably been the staple diet every college goer in Delhi University (or good old DU!), particularly in the North Campus.

For a long, long time, I was afraid to try momos, as getting that pretty crimped ghujiya like pattern looks like painstaking work. However, I discovered, it's just as good without the pattern, in the taste department, if not in looks, so like me, if that's been holding you back, give it a go!


Ingredients :
  • Wheat flour – 1/2 cup
  • Maida – 1/2 cup
  • Salt & water – as required.
For stuffing :
  • Carrot – 2 nos (Finely chopped )
  • Cabbage – 1 cup ( finely shredded / chopped )
  • Big onion – 2 nos (-d0-)
  • Garlic – 5-8 flakes (-do-)
  • Green chilly – 1-2 nos (slit cut ) (replace with chilly sauce if u r a spice lover)
  • Soya sauce – 1 tsp
  • Ajinomoto – 2 pinches (optional)
  • Salt – As required
  • Oil – 2 tbsp
Method :
  • Mix Maida , wheat flour  along with salt & water to make a soft pliable dough.Keep it aside.
  • Take a wide mouthed kadai with 2tbsp of oil and add the onions & garlic pieces.Saute for sometime.Then add the green chilly , followed by vegetables.
  • Saute well.Cover & cook for sometime.Add salt , soya sauce and Ajinomoto (optional ).Toss it well and switch off the flame.
  • Now take the dough and make small balls of even size.
  • Roll it to make a thin small poori of 4-5 inches. Remove the green chilly from the stuffing before u fill.
  • Then take a tsp of stuffing and keep it in the center of the poori.
  • Bring all the corners together and make a twist to get the shape of momos.I hope the picture gives u the clear idea.
  • Steam it in a idly pot for 10-15 mins or deep fry it !!
Serve hot with tomato sauce or Garlic chutney

  • 2/3 Tomatoes
  • Garlic flakes – 10 nos
  • Red chilly – 4 nos ( i added only 2)
  • cumin seeds- 1/2 tea spoon
  • Fenugreek (Methi Dana)-1/2 small tea spoon
  • turmeric powder-1/2 tea spoon
  • Asafoetida-hing-2 pinch
  • Vinegar –1- 2 tsp( based on the no of red chillies used)
  • Salt & water – as required.
  • oil- 1 table spoon
  • Grind all the ingredients given above with little water.(since the quantity is very less, i used little water to grind)
  • Fry for 3-5 minutes in a kadai
Note- If you love garlic then instead of hing you can put garlic

Transfer to a serving bowl and Enjoy with Momos.
