Steps to Prepare
Make The Filling :
Take all the ingredients under the heading 'For Filling' in a glass bowl and mix them using your hand. Keep aside.
Make The Shell :
Take the Flour, salt, oil in a bowl and make a soft doulg with some water. Do not add all the water at a time.
Add as much as you need. Cover the dough with a dump cloth and keep aside for 5 minutes.
Make The Dumplings :
Make small balls from the dough. Roll each ball into a small round. Put a teaspoon of the filling in the middle and bring all edges together in a fancy fan fold. Now cover the raw momos with a dump cloth.
Now take a flat pan, add some water into it and put on medium heat. In the meantime take the Tupperware steamer, grease some oil and put the raw momos in the steamer.
When the water will start boiling put the covered steamer on the boiling water, steam the momos for 10 minutes. Serve steamy hot Momos with spicy oily tangy chili sauce.
If you do not have steamer, still you can make momos. Take a wide and deep pan with lid, place the raw momos on a clean large piece of cheese cloth, tie the cheese cloth on the lower side of the lid, boil some water in the pan.
When the water will start boiling put the lid with raw momos.
Steam for 10 minutes and serve hot.
