VEG MOMOS RECIPE WITH GARLIC CHUTNEY/DIP

Print Friendly and PDF Yum

Veg momo
(Pics updated)

I had this in my friend’s house.She prepared steamed & deep fried Momos.Both were tasting excellent. We liked it very much.Generally Momos are prepared only with Maida/All purpose flour.I have posted two versions , one with maida & another one with maida & wheat flour in 2 :1 ratio.But the color of wheat ones don't look good ;). After tasting these momos , my MIL started making it with  wheat flour.She said it tastes good when eaten hot..More than the color , its healthy , she said :) I prepared a dip /chutney as an accompaniment.It was  a nice combination.As i prepared idli along with momos , we had this chutney for both idly & momos. I’ve given the recipe for momo sauce/dip at the end of this post.. As i prepared the dough & filling in very less quantity , i made less number of deep fried momos..

I wanted to update the pictures of momo as it the most popular post in my blog :) ..Before updating the old pictures , i wanted to c the shape of momos served here in restaurants.Last week my hubby took me to a chinese restaurant and there i tasted momos in different shapes.They looked very cute and small in size.. I wanted to try those shapes and i finally got the idea after watching an you tube video of veenas kitchen where she had posted the recipe from the chef’s hands.He had very well explained the different shapes..Thanks a lot to veena’s kitchen and the chef Smile . I have tried to give the step by step pictures for different shapes. Hope i can make it perfect in future ..Last but not the least , momos has to be served really hot to enjoy its original flavour & taste..
