Well after listening to so much about MOMOs from Binu, finally I got to taste it... It was at Kirk when Benjamin Das brought a few packs and put it up for sale... Yummy..

All purpose flour - 2 cups
salt to taste
Warm water

For the filling :
Cabbage - 1 cup finely chopped
Onions - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Mushrooms - 1/2 cup
Carrot - 1 finely chopped
Salt to taste
Garam masala - 1 tsp
green chillies - 1 finely chopped ( u can reduce this according to ur taste..)
Garlic pods - 1 finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp finely chopped
Tabasco sauce - 1 tsp ( u can add chili sauce)
Oil - 2 tsp

Method :

Firstly we will make the dough. Take the flour in a bowl and salt and water to it. Knead it into a nice smooth dough. Keep aside.

Now we can make the filling. For the filling shred the cabbage, chop the onions, mushroom and carrot finely.
In a pan take some oil and add the chopped garlic and ginger to it. saute for 1 min and then add the chopped onions. Add the green chillies and the garam masala and saute once again.

Now, add the chopped vegetables to it along with salt and the tonasco sauce and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes and ur filling is ready. U dont need to cook the vegetable too much.

Take a small amount if the dough , roll it into a small circle of 4 inch diameter and place a spoon ful of the filling in the centre of the cirle. Get all the sides of the circle to the centre and pack the filling. Do the same with the whole dough. Steam of the dumplings until they are cooked well.
