‘Momos’ recipe – finally!

It all started in the Stobey’s😊. A small but tidy pizzeria at the corner of busy Wellington street facing towards a big church like seeking it’s blessing by bending humbly in front of it. There were we! Looking at each other. I suppose,it was looking at me🙄. I had heard so many bad things about it. Not many people like it. And yes!because it falls into ‘particular’  category it already carrying a bad reputation😏. I too assumed so like a common person who trusts the people around him/her. But a small part of my mind was telling me, ‘that’s not fair,at least give it a chance.’ In the game of “should I or should not”,the last petal of ‘I should!’ won the game. And believe me it takes the courage. The feeling was great. I felt like I have really grown. Stale thoughts were peeling off my mind. I felt rejuvenated. Now comes the big thing,convincing others after you found contentment with yourself. I am not really good with convincing. So I stopped where ‘I should!’😇.

I am not even thinking about convincing you, just one request.. Try this recipe and may be some of you who don’t like “broccoli” can learn to love it. Exactly like I did,sitting in the stobey’s pizzeria eating a pizza with “broccoli” topping,savoring each bite. After that day, I bought broccoli and used it in various combinations I can think of. How can I stay away from my momos love! I made these steamed momos with broccoli feeling. Who says you can not love two things equally??!! I definitely do🙂. And also,I always talk about momos but did not give the recipe yet. How rude of me! So here it is.

Ingredients : 

  • 1 cup – all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup – water
  • Salt – to taste
  • 1/2 cup – finely chopped broccoli
  • 1/3 cup – finely chopped vegetable(cabbage,carrots)
  • 1 inch – ginger,minced
  • 2 no – green chillies,chopped
  • Oil – for tempering


Directions : 

  1. Add all purpose flour,salt in a big bowl. Add water as necessary to knead it into a soft dough.
  2.  Keep it aside by covering with kitchen towel.
  3. In a large pan heat oil for tempering. Add minced ginger and green chillies to it.
  4. Add chopped vegetables to the tempering. Add salt. Saute for a minute. Keep aside to cool down.
  5. Make small balls from the dough. Roll out into thin disks.
  6. Add vegetable filling into those disk and pack it in a desired shape of dumpling.
  7. In a large bowl keep water for boiling. Add steamer basket just touching the water.
  8. Put stuffed dumplings on the steamer basket. Put lead on the bowl.
  9. Steam the momos for 5 to 10 minutes.
  10. Serve it hot with chilli oil.

P.S. – sorry for not so good photos of recipe. I can not think through when momos are in front of me😐😜.
