- add all vegetables saute for a minute.
- add salt and mix well cook everything for 5 min until it is cooked.
- then add soya sauce,black pepper powder mix well and cook for 1 min, keep aside.
- Divide the dough into small lemon size portions of an inch in diameter.
- Dust the dough portions in flour and roll out into a circle. Don’t roll too thick, as the filling will push itself out and tear when steamed.
- Place a small spoon of filling in the center of the rolled circle.
- Bring together the edges of the dough with a pinching and folding motion on one side and bring the other side to hold to the pinched side.
- By doing this, the half moon shaped momos will have a frilled look. Proceed the similar way with the remaining dough.
- As you keep shaping the momos, you need to keep them on a greased platter and cover with a damp cloth to prevent them from drying out.
- While you are shaping the momos, keep a steamer with water boiling. Grease the steamer pan with some oil to prevent the momos from sticking.
- Place the shaped momos on the greased steamer pan.
- So when you have one set of shaped momos, place them in the steamer and steam on high for 5 to 7 minutes until you see a glaze on the skin. The skin will begin to shine.
As soon as you notice this, turn off the heat.
- serve momos hot with sauce sauce of your choice.
