Veg Momos Recipe (how to make veg momos)

Veg Momos Recipe

A superfan of momos whether it is veg momos or chicken momos never ends up eating one plate of momos which contains of 5 -6 momos. That is why I always cook veg momos at home. Sometimes in pressure cooker and some time in steamer. While eating in restaurants it always seems that veg momos is going to be a tough recipe, but honestly, it is ont the one tough recipe. Veg momos is an easy recipe if some one can really roll the dough thin.

So rolling the dough thin is the only thing which is required to make veg momos at home. Momos can be made of thick roll also but that is not the very tasty because it tastes like the flour used. So keeping the rools thin is the secret.

When being a superfan of this dish from north east india, I often want to have it. But when it is made of maida or refined flour, We avoid to have it frequently, so I make veg momos at home using wheat flour.

Wheat flour veg momos are more healthy then the maida momos. It does not matter if you try it first time or second time, any time is good to start a healthy food. So, the first timers can also make the good tsty momos with wheat flour.

Happy Cooking !!!
