For the filling:

For the dough:

For the dipping sauce:


  1. Prepare the filling:
    • Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and grated ginger, and sauté for a minute until fragrant.
    • Add the chopped vegetables and mushrooms to the pan and stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes until they are slightly softened.
    • Sprinkle cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, chili powder, salt, and black pepper over the vegetables. Mix well to combine.
    • Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are cooked through but still retain their crunch.
    • Add soy sauce and chopped cilantro to the mixture, and give it a final stir. Remove the filling from the heat and set it aside to cool.
  2. Prepare the dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour and salt. Gradually add water while kneading to form a soft and pliable dough.
    • Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Shape the Momos:
    • After the resting period, divide the dough into small equal-sized balls. Roll out each ball into a thin, circular wrapper using a rolling pin.
    • Place a spoonful of the vegetable filling in the center of each wrapper, making sure not to overfill it.
    • Fold the wrapper in half, forming a half-moon shape. Seal the edges by pinching and pleating them together. Repeat the process until all the wrappers and filling are used.
  4. Steam the Momos:
    • Grease a steamer basket or line it with cabbage leaves to prevent sticking.
    • Arrange the Veg Momos in the steamer, making sure to leave some space between them to prevent sticking.
    • Steam the Momos over high heat for about 12-15 minutes or until the wrappers become translucent and the filling is cooked
  5. Prepare the dipping sauce:
    • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, minced ginger, chopped green onions, and chili flakes (if desired). Mix well to combine.
  6. Serve and enjoy:
    • Once the Veg Momos are steamed, carefully transfer them to a serving platter.
    • Serve them hot with the prepared dipping sauce on the side.
    • Enjoy the delightful flavors of Veg Momos with friends and family!
