Ingredients to make Chayote Momos

  • For the dough:
  • 450 grams all purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • Water as needed
  • For the Filling:
  • 2 large sized chayotes finely grated
  • 4 medium sized onions finely chopped
  • 1 inch piece ginger minced
  • ½ tsp ajinomoto
  • 125 ml olive oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • For the chutney:
  • 3 medium sized tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds slightly roasted
  • 3-4 green chilles (adjust the spice as per taste)
  • 1 tsp giner grated
  • Salt to taste

How to make Chayote Momos

  1. Take a large bowl, put in the flour, salt and water together. Mix well and knead for about 10 minutes till the dough is soft and smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all the filling listed ingredients, except the oil. Mix this filling mixture properly.
  3. Divide the dough into small dough balls of equal sizes and roll into very thin circles of roughly 4 inch diameter.
  4. Using your fingers, dab a tiny bit of water on the edges of the circle. Put in a tablespoon of the filling in the centre of each circle.
  5. Fold the edges over the filling, then twist to fold the momo pieces into half (like a semi-circular shape) and pinch the edges shut. (You can get creative with the momo shape and design but make sure to seal the edges well.)
  6. Grease the momo steamer rack beforehand with some oil. Then place the momos in a uniformed manner in the steamer rack.
  7. Pour water into the steamer dish and bring it to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, lower the flame, place the steamer rack filled with momos on top and let it get steamed and cooked for 10-15 minutes.
  8. To make the chutney, you can grill or steam the tomatoes. Once steamed, remove the outer skin and cut into halves. Also lightly roast the sesame seeds for 1-2 minutes till a nice aroma develops.
  9. Put in all the chutney ingredients into a blender to form a smooth paste.
  10. Serve these hot momos with the spicy and yummy tomato chutney.
