BM #104 Day 16 - 

These Paneer Momos have become a family favorite ever since I first tried my hand at making vegetable momos at home. 

I made a small batch as I wasn't sure the kids would like the paneer stuffing. They had to be gently coaxed to try these out and once they tasted it, they finished the whole batch leaving none for me to taste :)

It is a reminder to self that I need to make these more often specially when I am breaking my head as to what to make for an after school snack for the kids.

Ingredients - 
For the wrapper - 
Whole Wheat Flour 3/4 cups
Salt 1/4 tsp
Vegetable Oil 1/2 tsp
For the Filling -
Sesame Oil 2 tsp
Ginger, grated 1 tsp
Garlic, grated 1/2 tsp
Spring Onions finely chopped 1 Tbsp

Green Chilies finely chopped, Salt as needed
Paneer, crumbled 1/2 cup
Soy Sauce 1 tsp

Tomato Chili Garlic Sauce 1/2 tsp

Method Of Preparation -
For the Wrapper - 
In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, salt and warm water and knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for 15-20 minutes.

For the Stuffing - 
In a heated pan, add oil and saute the green chilies, ginger and garlic for a few seconds. Add in the crumbled paneer and lightly saute.

Add in salt, soy sauce and vinegar. Mix well and remove from heat. [Adjust spices if needed.]

Allow the stuffing to cool while working on the dough.

To Assemble the Momos - 
Pinch a marble sized dough and roll out like a roti. Put a tablespoon of filling in it. Close the edges like a frill and gather the pleats to the center and seal. Pinch off the extra dough in the center if needed. Continue till all the momos are done in any shape as preferred. 

Transfer them into a greased steamer basket. Steam for about 10-12 minutes and check if they appear glossy.

Allow them to sit in the steamer for a few minutes.

Serve warm with a sweet and sour sauce.

  5. I haven't tried momos yet though I get requests at home. The wheat wrapping makes it healthier and the paneer filling sounds delicious.

  6. Never tried paneer momos but it sounds interesting. Using wheat flour instead of maida is also a healthier variation. Your momos look great. Awesome share.
