MOMO Addiction!!

MOMO (Nepali Dumpling) is the most popular Nepali dish. With, Mt.Everest and Lord Buddha, MOMO is another statement that symbolizes Nepal. It is extremely popular both in Nepal and in the world. MOMO is the best because it is easy, gathering friendly, and most importantly addictively delicious. People have their own ways of making this delicacy. And here are the techniques I follow:
MMM... :)

Prep time: 45min(s) Cook time:15min(s) Total time: 60min(s)

Things you will need:

  • 1 ground chicken/pork/beef packet (I used chicken)
  • 1 packet all purpose flour wraps 
  • 1 medium sized onion finely chopped
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste (2 table spoons)
  • Half cup shredded cheese (Any shredded cheese will work)
  • 3 table spoon soy sauce
  • Chicken curry masala (2 table spoons)
  • Cumin-coriander powder (2 table spoons)
  • Red chili powder (1 table spoon)
  • 3 table spoon oil
  • 7-8 strands of cilantro  finely chopped
  • Salt (according to your taste and make sure to reduce the quantity here because soy sauce is salty as well)
1. On a large bowl put ground meat. 
2. After this, add onion, cheese, soy sauce, ginger-garlic paste, chicken curry masala, cumin-coriander   powder,red chili powder, oil, cilantro, and salt.
3. Mix everything together. And keep the mixture aside.
4. Make your steamer ready (Keep water to boil (on high heat) and in the meanwhile glaze steamer with oil to prevent MOMO from sticking)
5. Start wrapping. Make whatever shapes you like. By this time water should be boiling. Put steamers with wrapped MOMOs on top of the boiling water.
6. MOMO usually takes 10-15 minutes to be done but you can tell just by looking at the consistency. MOMOs turn transparent when cooked.
7. DONE!! Enjoy it with any kind of Dip (like Ketchup). Or Click here for yummy MOMO Achar Recipe.
