  • Keep a nonstick pan on the gas and wait for it to heat up. Once it is heated add 1 tbsp. of oil, wait for the oil to get hot and then add garlic cloves and green chilli. Sauté for 1 minute.
  • Add onions and sauté for 2 mins, add carrots and cabbage and sauté for 2-3- mins. (Make sure you do not over cooks as these are the stuffing of momos, and we do not want the raw taste of the vegetables when we are just sautéing them) .

Process 2:

  • While the water gets boiled :
  • Take the dough and break it into small balls, roll them out neatly into a round shape using a rolling pin (make sure that you roll it out in the thinnest layer possible) 
  • Fill the centre of these circles with the stuffing
  • Once done use some water on the sides of the dough.
  • After that start making small folds on the inside using your thumb and your forefinger, bring the folds to the centre and seal with water.

Process 3:

  • Once the water has boiled Take Steamer utensil, Grease it a little with Oil so that the momos do not stick to the steamer. 
  • Place the steamer into the Rice cooker/Idli maker/ Kadhai.
  • Add momos to the steamer making sure that they are not placed too close to each other and there is a little gap between them.
  • Cover the steamer with the lid and let it cook for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the lid after 15 minutes, check if they are steamed properly if not let cook for 5 more minutes.
