I had this in my friend’s house.She prepared 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.
Maida – 1 cup
Cooking oil – 1 tsp ( to make dough) +1 tsp ( to add in steaming water)
Salt & water – as required.
For stuffing :
Carrot – 2 nos (Finely chopped )
Cabbage – 1 cup ( finely shredded / chopped )
Big onion – 2 nos (-d0-)
Garlic – 5-8 flakes (-do-)
White Pepper powder – 1 tsp (adjust)
Soya sauce – 1/2 tsp
Ajinomoto – 2 pinches (optional)
Salt – As required
Oil – 2 tbsp
Mix Maida with salt,water and a tsp of oil to make a soft pliable dough.Keep it covered for 30 minutes.
Chop all the vegetables very finely..Take a wide mouthed kadai with 2tbsp of oil and add the onions & garlic pieces.Saute for sometime.Then add vegetables.
Saute well in high flame, keep tossing for 3 minutes.Add salt , soya sauce ,White pepper powder and Ajinomoto (optional ).Toss it well and switch off the flame.
Now take the dough and make very small sized balls ( 20 gms weight) of even size.
Roll it to make a thin small poori of 4-5 inches. Then take a tsp of stuffing and keep it in the center of the poori.
I made three different shapes of momos .
Arrange the momos in a greased plate & steam in an idli pot for 10-15 mins or deep fry it.. Add a tsp of oil in idli pot water while steaming.
Serve hot with tomato sauce or Garlic chutney.
