This Tibetan origin dish, is popular as a street food in India. With variety filling and shape, it is a favourite among all. The young, the adult love momos alike.

 Memo-1

Here, I am  bringing together everybody’s favourite maggi and momo together. Keeping the originality of the momo I have made slightest change to accommodate maggi into this recipe. If you take out the maggi element you get authentic momo.

Memo-4

This is a welcome change for all of you who love maggi and momo. The combination is surely a hit. I have steamed the momos, but you can readily fry them if you like it that way. Stuffing is an important and vital part of the momos. The basic version has cabbage, carrots, onions, but you are free to create your own stuffing. Pair up some red hot chutney to savour the momos.

These ma-mo’s(maggi-momo 😛 ) are too good to stop at one 🙂

Steps:

In a pan, heat oil on medium flame.Add garlic and fry for a minute.Fry onion,ginger and capsicum on high flame for a minute.

Memo-prep1

Add carrot and cabbage.Sauté it for 2 minutes in high flame.Add soy sauce, lower the flame, add cooked noodles, salt,black pepper powder and toss well for 2 minutes .

Memo-prep2

Pinch small lemon sized portion from the dough and make it to a round ball.Lightly dust the rolling board and roll dough ball into circles. Do not flatten it too thin or thick.Place the filling in the centre .Start pleating from one end and join all the pleats together at the centre to seal the filling.
