Ingredients to make Steamed veg and paneer momos

  • For the stuffing:
  • 1/2 cup grated and squeezed cabbage
  • 1/2 cup paneer, grated or crumbled
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 Medium Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 5 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • Green chillies as per taste
  • Salt to taste
  • For the red chutney:
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 green chilli
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp mustard oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • For the dough:
  • 1 cup maida
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Warm water to knead

Steps to make Steamed veg and paneer momos

  1. To prepare the dough, combine the maida, salt and oil together, using a little water at a time bind them together to form a soft dough. Keep it covered with a wet cloth and let it rest till further use.
  2. To prepare the stuffing, mix together all the listed ingredients and keep aside.
  3. To shape the momos, divide the dough into 14 equal sizes. Take one part, give it a round shape using your hands and roll it using a rolling pin as thin as possible. (Just like the way you make rotis).
  4. Fill some stuffing in the center of the circle, lift both the sides and seal them together as shown in the picture. Keep aside and cover with a wet cloth. Follow the same steps for all the 13 portions.
  5. Once done, steam these momos in the momo stand or idli stand for 15 minutes in a medium flame.
  6. To make the chutney, take some water in a pressure cooker. Add the tomatoes, garlic and chillies and pressure cook it for 1 whistle. Turn off the flame after 1 whistle and let the pressure release on its own.
  7. Once the pressure releases, take out the tomatoes, garlic and chillies and let it cool. After they are cooled, blend it in a mixer to a smooth paste without adding any water. Then take it out in a bowl, add salt, mustard oil and coriander leaves. Mix and serve.
  8. Serve the momos hot immediately with the chutney.
My Tip: * Don't skip using coriander leaves in both the chutney and stuffing. It enhances the taste. * Increase the spice level as per your taste by adding more chillies to both the chutney and stuffing. This recipe has normal spice.

    @Shipra priyadarshi : Folloe the above recipe for the dough.. It will not be dry.. Plus rolling the sheet very thin helps in keeping the momos moist..
