For Momos Wrapping
  • 1 cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Rice flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to knead
For Momos Stuffing
  • 2 cup Cabbage finely chopped
  • 1 cup Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Ginger and garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Pepper
For Asian Hot & Sour Momos Marinade
  • 1 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Red chili sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Ketchup
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Red chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Momos Spicy Chutney
  • Grated carrot, sliced capsicum and onion for garnish
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  1. Knead the dough for momos by mixing whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, rice flour, salt with water. Knead into a medium soft dough. Cover and keep aside.
  2. For the stuffing, heat oil in a heavy sauce pan. Add ginger garlic paste once hot. After a minute, add onions and saute till transparent.
  3. Add cabbage, salt and pepper. Mix well, cover and cook until soft and done. Should take around 7-10 minutes.
  4. Roll out big thin rounds if making “Jumbo Momos” or small thin rounds if making “Regular size Momos”.
  5. Place 4 tbsp of the stuffing for “Jumbo Momos” in the center. Start folding from one end by making small pleats. Continue till you make pleats throughout. Now carefully pinch the two ends together. Similarly make the others. With this dough, I could make 6 jumbo momos.
  6. Prepare the bamboo or steal steamer and once the steam is built up, place the momos in the steamer and steam for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through. Since it’s whole wheat, it will take a bit more time to cook than the “maida (all purpose flour) version.
  7. Take them out of the steamer and allow them to cool.
  8. In the meanwhile, make the asian marinade by mixing together all the ingredients under marinade in a big bowl.

  9. Place the cold momos in the marinade and allow to stand for 10 minutes or more (if time permits).
  10. Now place some oil in a pan for shallow frying these momos.
  11. Fry from both sides and serve hot with momo chutney.
