Flour wrap filled with meat, vegetables or cheese and steamed in a steamer is called momo. Momo is a very healthy and nutritious food since it does not need much oil to make them as well. I have used whole wheat flour also along with maida/all purpose flour. The fillings used are chicken, cabbage and mushrooms. Momos are served with hot garlic tomato sauce.
