After reaching Bangalore from our trip, I still clearly remeber that my mission was to find out where to get the best momos in town! And luckily I found one very very close to where I was staying. It was in the Tibetian Market on Rest House Road next to the very famous Brigade Road.It was a small restaurant by the name Taste Of Tibet.They also have another outlet on Richmond Road. I like both but prefer the latter one because its more tastier there :)
And now the scene is different! I'm at home now and people here would stare at you if ask them whether they serve Momos in restaurants here ;) Its very not so common here :D So the only option left is DIY :D And thats the result you saw above :D See how passionate I am when it comes to food ;)
All purpose flour/Maida-500 g
Green Chillies-10 g
Soya sauce-1 tsp
Ajinomoto (optional) -1/4 tsp
Oil -1 tbsp
Mix flour,salt and egg.
Add tepid wate and make a soft dough,kneading vigorously for about 20 mins.
Set the dough aside for approximately 1 hour.
Chop onions, green chillies and ginger.
Mix them with the mincemeat.
Add salt, soya sauce and ajinomoto and mix well.
To shape momos:
Divide the dough evenly into small balls ( weighing approx.10 g each)
Roll to about 6 cm in diameter.
Put 1 tsp of mincemeat filling in the centre.
And shape them into rounds by gathering the edges and pinching it in the centre.
You can shape them into the 'wonton' shapes by filling the circles,folding it into half and getting the pointed ends together and sealing it with little water .
To steam momos:
Boil water in the bottom compartment of a momo steamer ,idli steamer or pressure cooker with idli steamer.
Grease the perforated compartments and place momos keeping atleast 1/2" space round each momo.
Steam momo for 25-30 minutes( If pressure cooker is used ,do not put the weight)
Serve steaming hot .
Hope you all liked my wonderful juicy affair with momos!!
