Welcome to Little Chef’s Apron! A few days ago, my summer vacation started and until they are over, I will be doing a series with episodes of new recipes that I try!
I haven’t been to China, but their food is finger licking. It is so delicious that I have been trying so many fried recipe recipes and now momos. Today’s post has momos that are very delicious and incredibly easy to make!
1 cup all purpose flour
Water as needed
2 tbsp oil
Chopped or shredded:
- Spring onion
- Green chilli
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli sauce
First, add salt and flour to a bowl and mix well. Then, add oil and make sure that the flour is rubbed well with the oil.
Then, add water slowly to make a soft dough. Mix in the water slowly and make a smooth, soft dough while continuously kneading.
Then, brush some oil and let it rest for 30 minutes. On the other hand, cut and shred the above mentioned vegetables to a bowl. Add 1 tbsp oil and mix well. This will make sure that the stuffing doesn’t form a dough.
Then, add a tsp of salt and let it rest for 15-20 minutes. When salt is added, what happens is that the vegetables release their water which is exactly what we want.
Squeeze out the water thoroughly until there is none left. Then, add in chilli sauce and keep aside.
Then divide the dough equally into balls and roll each of them to make a circle. Then, with a rolling pin, slowly make a flat circle and dust some flour if required.
Make sure that the middle of the circle dough is a little thick or else it might tear during steaming. Then, add in a tsp of the stuffing and form a shape of momo by taking the end of the circle and lifting it up.
Repeat the process until creases form and seal it well at the top. take a vessel and fill with water. Let it come to a boil and place a strainer that is perforated . Place moms carefully once water starts to boil and cover this.
Cook for 5-7 minutes and serve hot with a dip of your choice!
