Momos are steamed dumplings made by wrapping combinations of minced meat or vegetables in thin wrapper made out of flour dough.

A perfect momo is juicy from inside and super soft from outside. You can feel the burst of juices from filling as soon as you bite into a good momo. Momos have become quite a rage in recent times specially in Delhi , although this dish belongs to North Eastern parts of India and the neighbouring country nepal. You can find a momo stall at every nook and corner of delhi. Served at a very reasonable price of 10 to 20 rs. per plate it becomes a good munching option for college students or someone who is looking for something delicious to eat on streets.

Traditionally momos are made with minced meat of pork , beef or chicken but here in Delhi it also comes with soya , paneer and vegetable filling variants.

Today I decided to make momos at home with spinach and paneer as I am vegetarian and you all know paneer is a vegetarian’s meat. Right?
