About Paneer Momo with Red Chili Garlic Sauce Recipe

Momos are a common street food in the North Eastern part of India. They are made both in veg. and non-veg version. The stuffing for the veg. version is usually that of finely sliced veggies. But today I would like to share a paneer stuffed momo that can be served with a fiery red chili garlic sauce. They can be steamed as well as fried. But this is the steamed version. They are perfect as a tea-time snack. In fact, they can be relished anytime of the day.
