Beef Momos


Momo is a type of dumpling mostly famous in Tibet and Nepal. They are made with a simple flattened dough filled with minced meat or veggies. There are different choices for momo shapes in which the most common are the basic round shapes, and the half-moon shapes. This is the recipe of a steamed Tibetan half-moon shaped Momo.

 Ingredients for the dough
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water
Directions 
  1. Mix all the ingredients and kneed the dough till soft and non-sticky. 
  2. Cover and  keep aside for at least half an hour. 
  3. Before rolling out, prepare the 'filling' as explained below.
Ingredients for the filling
  • 3/4 cup ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped cilantro 
  • Oil
Directions
  1. Take a bowl & mix all the ingredients well.
  2. Then roll out the dough  and cut it into little circles (about the size of your palm)
  3. Take one and hold the flat circular dough in your left hand and put a tablespoon of filling in the middle of the dough. Fold and  press together the two edges of the half circle. Start at one tip of the half-moon, and fold over a very small piece of dough, pinching it down until you reach the other tip of the half-moon.
  4. Fill in all the rolled out dough and lay the momos without touching each other in a greased steamer.
  5. Steam the momos for atleast 10 minutes and then serve hot with the hot sauce!
Ingredients for the Hot Sauce
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 5 Red chillies
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sliced Onion
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Oil
Directions
  1. Pour oil in a pan and saute onion. Add red chillies and garlic. Saute for some time.
  2. Mix in sliced tomatoes, cilantro, salt & saute for some more time.
  3. Allow it to cool it a little and make a paste using a food processor or blender.
