For the filling of momos –
Take some oil, saute one onion, add any leftover subzi/ Paneer/ chicken you have. I used shredded chicken pieces from leftover chili chicken I made last night. You can also add some vegetables like peppers, mushrooms, beans etc. to this mixture.
For the chutney of momos –
- Char two tomatoes and soak 2-4 chillies in warm water for 10 minutes. In a blender, grind the two with some salt.
- In a small pan take some oil, add one minced garlic, 1 bulb of spring onion, chopped (You can take regular onion too) and little soy sauce. Grind again, if you feel the need.
Let’s prepare MOMOS –

2. Roll out very small and thin circles. place the filling, gather it and pinch from the top.
3. You can steam it if you have the equipment. And in case, if you don’t have one than use appe pan to make it. Maybe in appe pan it will loose the shape a little. But will taste so good !! you can deep fry too, but this version of steamed momos are much healthier.
