Vegetable Momos

As I had promised in one of my earlier posts, I am presenting the recipe of Veg Momos to my dear readers. This is my own recipe and I can confidently say that this recipe is for keeps. Always make it a point to serve the Momos with the spicy sauce, as it takes the experience to another level. Please


Chilli Sauce

  • 5 - 6 chillies (adjust to suit your liking) Dried red
  • 2 tablespoons Vinegar
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Tomato
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • to taste Salt

For the Covering

  • 1 cup Flour
  • to taste Salt
  • as required Water

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup Cabbage
  • 1/4 cup Carrot grated
  • 1/4 cup beans Finely chopped
  • 1 onion Finely chopped
  • 1 spring onion Finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon Soy sauce
  • to taste Salt


  • Mix all the ingredients for the filling. Keep aside.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour with salt and knead a soft dough adding adequate water. Cover the dough with a damp cloth. Apply oil lightly on the working surface. Take the dough and roll it out as thin as possible.
  • Cut out 3u2033 diameter circles using a cutter or any round edged bowl. Spoon small portions of the filling to the center of the circles. Bring all the edges together, to the center, making pleats.
  • Pinch and twist the pleats to secure the stuffing. Arrange the prepared Momos on a greased steamer. Cover with a lid and steam for about 10 minutes. Serve hot. This recipe yields about 20 momos.
  • Soak the chillies in vinegar for about 10 minutes. Grind all the ingredients along with the soaked chillies and vinegar into a fine paste.
