Ingredients for Vegetable Momos

  • Maida – 200 gm (2 small bowls)
  • Ghee or oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Baking powder – 1/5 small spoon
  • Salt – as per taste

Method

Take out the flour in a bowl. Mix salt and oil and knead soft dough with water. Leave the dough covered for half an hour.

Till then let's make the pitthi.

Ingredients for Pitthi

  • Capsicum – 2
  • Cabbage – 1 small bowl (finely cut)
  • Cauliflower – 1 small bowl (finely cut)
  • Carrots – 2 (grated)
  • Green peas – half small bowl
  • Cottage Cheese – 100 gm
  • Ghee or oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Black pepper - ¼ spoon
  • Red pepper – 1 pinch
  • Coriander – half small bowl (finely cut)
  • Salt – as per taste

(as per taste you can also use onion or garlic)

Put the ghee in a frying pan and heat it. Add the cut vegetables to the hot ghee. Mix black pepper, red chili, salt and coriander and fry for 2 minutes while stirring. Now crush the paneer into coarse powder and mix in the frying pan. Fry for another 1 to 2 minutes. The pitthi to fill in the momos is ready (If you also want onion or garlic then fry them before adding the vegetables).

Take out a small lump from the dough, shape it like a ball and flatten it with roller into a disk like shape with 3 inches diameter. Put pitthi in the center of the flattened dough and by folding from all the corners close it. Like this prepare the entire dough into pitthi filled pieces.

Now we have to cook the momos in steam. To do this you can use the special utensil for steaming the momos. In this special utensil, four to five utensils are piled on top of each other and the bottom section is a little bigger to fill the water. The above three or four utensils have a net like bottom.

Fill 1/3 of the bottom most utensil with water and heat it. Put the momos in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th utensil. About 12 to 14 momos will fit in one utensil. Cook in the steam for 10 minutes. The momos in the second last utensil are cooked. Keep this utensil on the top and pull down the other two utensils. After 8 minutes repeat the above process. And let them steam for another 5 to 6 minutes. We have been reducing the time because all utensils are on top of one another and the steam also cooks a little the momos in the upper uttensils. The momos are ready.

If you don't have the special utensil to make the momos then put a filter stand in a big bottomed utensil and keep the momos on top of the filter. Fill water, at the bottom of the filter stand, in the utensil and heat it for 10 minutes. The momos are ready, take them out in a plate. If you have more momos then repeat the above step.

The delicious Vegetable Momos are now ready to serve and eat along with red chili or coriander chutney.
