How to make wheat flour momos

Its been years since I posted Vegetable momo recipe in my blog. Generally momos are made using maida/All purpose flour. But my MIL makes it using whole wheat flour as it is more healthy. So I too started making the same following my MIL. I have heard wheat flour momos are very popular in Delhi. Here I have shared the steamed version. You can try deep fried version too. According to me, there is no major difference in taste between maida & wheat momo except its color. 

One more thing, this momo has to be eaten really hot to enjoy its best taste else it will become slightly chewy & hard. But when compared with maida momo, this is a healthy option indeed. I have used cabbage alone for stuffing. You can use finely chopped mixed vegetables if you are allergic of cabbage. Recently I got a request from my reader and cute sister Dhivya to prepare wheat flour momos and post here. So here it is Dhivya, just for you.

Friends, do try this healthy momos & share your feedback. Ok, Lets see how to make whole wheat flour momos at home with step by step pictures & a Video.

Check out my Maida momos recipe for wrapping momo in different shapes. Here is my Chilli garlic sauce/Momos chutney recipe. Do check it.

I will make a separate video for wrapping momos in different shapes.

  • Wheat flour momos become slightly chewy & hard after it cools down. So eat it hot. Reheating is not recommended.
  • Replace wheat flour with maida or use maida & wheat flour in equal quantities for variations.
