Momos are little pockets of yummy deliciousness filled with veggies, it’s an absolutely enjoyable snack. And if you are craving those flavoursome street style momos this is the recipe for you.


For the dough:

        2 cup maida

        Salt to taste

        2 tbsp Oil

For the stuffing:

        1- 1½ tbsp oil

        1 tbsp garlic (finely chopped)

        1-inch ginger(grated)

        1 medium-sized onion (finely chopped)

        ½ Carrot (grated)

        1 Capsicum (finely chopped)

        1 cup Cabbage (finely chopped)

        Salt to taste

        1 tbsp white vinegar

        Soy sauce


To make the dough:

        Take a bowl, add 2 cups of maida, 2 tbsp of salt, 2 tbsp of oil and mix it well. Then, gradually add water to the mixture and make a firm dough (it should neither be too firm nor too soft.)

        Cover the dough and keep it aside.

To make the stuffing:

        Heat a pan and add oil to it then add garlic and ginger and sauté them on until golden brown. Once they are golden brown add onion, carrot, capsicum, cabbage (vegetables must be finely chopped) and mix them well and sauté them on high heat for 2-3 minutes, and then add salt to the stuffing. Reduce the gas to medium flame, then add white vinegar and soy sauce to it and mix it well then sauté them for another 2 minutes.

To make the momos:

        Take the dough and knead it again, then pinch out small portions and make small balls out of them.

        Then take a small ball of dough and begin to roll it out, in case you feel like it will stick to the rolling board, or pin dust some maida over it and roll it out into thin sheets.

        Fill them up with stuffing. (do not overstuff the momos as they can fall apart due to too much stuffing.)

        There are 3 ways you can seal the momo:

First, fold the wrapper in half and start pleating from one side to another and seal the edges.

Second, start pleating the edges and slowly gather everything, and press in middle to seal the momos.

Third, fold the wrapper in half and seal it (with the help of some water), and then join the ends/corners together and seal them.

        Prepare momos out of the remaining dough in a similar way.

        Boil 1 cup oil in a pan to steam the momos, the gas must be in low- medium flame.

        Take a steamer plate/ strainer and grease it so the momos don’t stick to it and place it on the pan. (You can keep the cabbage peel on the plate instead of greasing it as well.)

        Arrange them with some space around them so they don’t stick together.

        Once they are arranged, cover them and let them cook for 10- 15 minutes.

        After 10-15 minutes the momos must be translucent and cooked well.

        Then cover it up for 2 more minutes and then transfer them to a plate. (you can use a tong to take them out.)

        Now, your Market-style mouth-watering momos are ready to be served with some momos chutney.
