image imageMomo is a type of steamed bun with or without filling. Momo is a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet ,among Nepalese/Tibetan communities in Bhutan, and also the North Eastern part of India. It is one of the most popular fast foods in many regions of Nepal . It is mostly stuffed with different types of meat. Over the years ,Vegetarian Momos have also become popular with different varieties of Vegetarian stuffing. I have made Momos many times. But this time I have tried the Multi Grain Momos. This is far more healthy and Nutritious. My kids love this and I find it easier to incorporate Multi Grains into their diet.

Recipe for Multigrain Veggie Momos:

Ingredients For stuffing :

1/2 carrot Julienned

1/2 Capsicum cut into long thin strips

1/4 Cup shredded cabbage

1″Ginger grated

Handful  of Green peas

1 Cup hand crushed paneer (Optional)

Salt to taste

1/2 Tsp Chilli powder(as per your taste)

1/4 Coarse pepper powder

Mix all the ingredients together.

For the dough: (All  items  except Maida are to be slightly roasted and powdered)

1 Tbsp Flax seed powder

1 Tsp Green gram powder

1 Tsp Bajra powder

1 Tsp Chia seeds powder

1 Tsp Quinoa powder

1 Tsp maida.

Mix all the above mentioned flours and knead the dough using olive oil. Sprinkle some water and knead the dough. Make the dough balls. Take a dough ball and roll it using a rolling pin .Divide it into half. Shape it like samosa or any desired shape and stuff the filling and seal it. Steam it in a rice cooker for 20 to 25 mins.

  1. This is so creative, so healthy and so yummy. If such nutrient rich ingredients can be incorporated in the dishes we love then what a health loaded life we all will enjoy. I have bookmarked this must try dish. Very nice.

  2. Oh! I used to go with friends to a Tibetan restaurant near here, and almost always got momo – we’d order several kinds, and share.

    Then I didn’t get there for a while, and now it has closed… So I’m delighted to be able to make them myself!

  3. I have never been to Nepal (on the list) but enjoy our local Nepalese restaurant. I can’t say I have ever seen momo on the menu, but I am going to look and ask if they don’t/ I will also try these at home. Is there a substitute ingredient if you can find maida?
