Momo recipe

Below is a very tasty recipe for making Nepalese momo. To make Tibetan momo, just remove the green vegetables.

Ingredients:

Wrappers
2 cups of plain flour
3/4 cup of water

Filling
500g minced meat (buffalo or yak, Pork is great if those are not available!)
4-6 spring onions
1 tbsp fresh crushed ginger
1 1/2 tbsp crushed garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt Handful of coriander/cilantro
2 green chillies (remove seeds for less spice)
2 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp oil

Directions:

Finely chop all the filling ingredients and mix together. Mix the wrapper ingredients to make a dough. Roll the dough and make circles 6-10 cm across.

Place a dollop of mixture in the middle of each circle and wet the edges to glue easier. Stick the sides together strongly to stop leakage. Pleat if capable!

Boil a pan of water with a steaming pot on top. Oil the steaming pot to stop sticking. Place a few momo into the steamer and steam for 5-7 minutes.

Serve with a tomato and coriander sauce!
