Missed Delhi’s  HOT & SPICY Momos a lot in Bangalore…. but not anymore as i made them at home yesterday and yes it tasted exactly the same as it tasted at those small Kiosks… Yyppiieeee….

Cabbage: 1/2 medium

  3. Heat oil in a pan add chopped vegetables and cook for 5 mins then add vinegar, salt, pepper and ajinomoto.

  5. Divide the dough into 11 – 12 small equal size balls and roll each into thin chapati.
  6. Keep stuffing in half of the chapati then fold the other half over it to make a half moon shape dumpling and seal the edges (apply little water on corners).DSC00566
  7. Make all the dumplings of same shape or vary them with your choice.
  8. Steam it for 15 mins till the outer layer becomes transparent. (I used idly maker for steaming)
  9. Serve hot with Chilly Garlic Paste and tomato Ketchup.
Sending this recipe for Winter Carnival as steaming Hot momos tastes amazing in winters..
