Vegetable Momos are steamed dumplings made with all purpose flour or maida. It can be filled with either veggies or meat. These popular street dumplings are so versatile. Momos are very healthy and delicious when served with hot chilli sauce. Pardon me for the shape and size, as it's my first attempt ;-)
These dumplings were so good that we skipped dinner. I made these dumplings a month back and for some reason I have not been able to post this recipe but better late than never. This will be perfect for your kids, as it's not every day that you see kids relishing with lots of vegetables. These dumpling can be tried with wheat flour or deep fried as well.
