VEG MOMOS RECIPE WITH GARLIC CHUTNEY/DIP

Print Friendly and PDF
Veg momos
(Pics updated)

I had this Veg momos with garlic chutney in my friend’s house. She prepared both 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 see 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 . 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.

hii chitra, i have a question, can we preserve the garlic chutney for weeks?

Chitra said...

I dont think u can store this for weeks.I feel u can keep it for 3-4 days in an air tight box when refrigerated..

JohnRamma said...

Tired these for the first time today...Made them in Whole Wheat - & they were awesome. Thanx for sharing such beautiful pictures and all your lovely efforts enabling people to make these.

Previously I used to goto Brown Sugar (New Delhi) - the only outlet selling wheat momos, but now I feel like a KING.

Warm Regards
