Steamed Veg momos/Mushroom dumplings

Veg Momos are authentic starters of tibet and nepal .There are many variations to shape and fillings of momos from mushrooms,veggies,meat .Because i am a vegeterian i tried a veg version of momos .Making of shape is  little bit tough for first few momos ,after that you get used to it.Its like saree folding .
I googled and mixed many versions and here is the final version of mine .I loved a very detailed recipe of how to make the dough and shapes present here.Knead the dough well and put enough oil while streaming,roll them thin (between transparent and thick ) and serve them hot ,that way you can enjoy the streamed momos .You can Deep fry them or shallow fry them if you like to eat a fried version of it (i haven't tried them yet).
We ate it after clicking the pic so it was little hard .so enjoy them hot hot ...

  • Fold it like Saree folding and press them together to form a sharp edge .

  • You feel like modhak after finishing.

  • Keep this in greased holed streaming pot with boiling water for 7-8 minutes or until the momos are transparent(don't cook them for too long ,momos will be hard)
  • Serve it with soy sauce or sweet sour chutney like bell pepper chutney


  • Knead them well ,then your momos will be good .
  • Roll them thin to get a proper texture .
  • Eat them hot with tangy sauce like soy sauce .
  • Stream the momos in a pot with boiling water like you do for idli steaming.
  • You can stream them in microwave if the dough is not too thin and very soft (if the dough is thin and dry then you get a hard momos)
  • I did one batch in idli pot and one in microwave (i liked the momos from steamed pot ).
