Making Outer Cover

  • Mix all the ingredients mentioned and form a soft pliable dough and rest for an hour.In the mean time we will prepare filling and cool it.

  • Now add the chopped veggies, soy sauce, tomato sauce,salt and pepper.Saute in high flame for 4-5 minutes.
  • Finally add spring onion greens and remove from flame. Cool the stuffing.

Pleating and steaming the momos

  • Take the prepared dough and divide into four equal portions.Working with one portion at a time,roll in into a thin big circle.Using a cutter or lid of round box cut into circles.Again knead the remaining dough and make as many circles as possible.
  • Take one small cut circle and place 1 1/2 teaspoons of prepared filling in the center.
  • Now start pleating from one side and pleat in the same direction.Once done,sale the top and press slightly.
  • Boil some water in a steamer or idly cooker and arrange the shaped momos in the plate.Steam for 6-7 minutes.
  • Once done the momos will be glossy little bigger than we shaped.
  • Serve veg momos piping hot with momos chutney or schezwan sauce.


1.Here I have used baby corn but that is purely optional
2.If you don't have spring onion greens you can use thick stems of cilantro for garnishing.
