How to make Tandoori Momos

  1. To make dough: Combine the above ingredients and form a smooth dough and keep aside.
  2. For the momo filling: Take a wok, heat oil, add finely chopped ginger and green chilly fry for a min. Now add veggies one by one and add salt and pepper powder, sauté them on high flame for 3-4 mins. Now add soya sauce and vinegar, mix well. Now remove the mixture in a plate and allow to cool.
  3. For making momos. Take a small ball of the dough and roll out into a small puri (neither too thin nor too thick). Now apply water on the sides, Place one full tsp of filling in the center. Lift from side and fold it to meet ends at other side ( Gujiya shape). Now further apply water on crescent moon shape momo. Lift both ends and overlap the one end on other to stick well. Shape it well with hands (dimsum shape).
  4. Now heat around 2 inches of water in a vessel. Line the bamboo basket with cabbage leave or salad leaf (single layer) and place the momos in it. Cover it and place it on the top of the steaming hot water. ( the basket should never be immersed in water) Lower the flame and allow to cook till half don

My Tip:

If you don't have a momo basket, place a strainer (Hole wali channi) over the steaming water vessel or place it in a idli mould.
