What are Momos?

Steamed dumplings made with all-purpose flour and stuffed with crunchy vegetables, well flavored with garlic, with a hint of soy sauce relished with hot chutney; are momos. Momos recipe is originally a Tibetian recipe. But it is popular across the country, especially in the North-Eastern states. Finding a vegetarian recipe, which can be prepared by anyone in India, from the state of Meghalaya, was difficult. And when I read about the popularity of momos in that state, I decided to pick this one from Meghalaya for my collection of breakfast recipes from the states of India.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Momos Recipe

As already mentioned, momo is a steamed dumpling with the vegetable stuffing. Momos recipe can be prepared in a number of ways. The non-vegetarian version of moms with chicken stuffing is also very popular. However, we are here to discuss veg momos. Following is all you need to make Veg Momos:

All-purpose flour: Stiff dough is prepared using all-purpose flour, little oil and salt with water. The stiff dough should be prepared because we cannot use the flour to dust while rolling the sheet for momos.

Vegetables: Cabbage, carrot, and spring onions have been used. You can also use mushrooms, bell peppers etc.

Flavoring: Garlic, soy sauce, and black pepper powder have been used to flavor the veg momos.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
