For Making Momos:
Make small balls of dough and roll them out into small discs using a rolling pin. Make sure the centre is thick while the edges are thin.
Place some filling in the centre. Wet the edges and seal the momo so that the filling doesn’t spill.
- Heat some mustard/olive oil and add cumin seeds (jeera) and garlic
- Add red chilli, then tomatoes and saute for 5 minutes.
- Grind the mixture, once it's cool and serve with steamed momos.
Fill a large pan with two large glasses of water.
Put a strainer plate on the pan. (You can use a steamer, if it is available).
Place the momos on a plate on top of the strainer, or inside the steamer.
Steam for about 15 minutes and serve with chutney.
