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.

    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!

    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?
