A snack that has become almost synonymous with Chinese cuisine, Momos are made of a plain flour cover filled with sautéed veggies. Chinese Veg momo recipe is simple recipe to make.

An apt combination of garlic, ginger, green chillies and Schezuan sauce flavours the vegetable mixture, and the outcome is simply tongue-tickling!

Traditionally, Momos are steamed in bamboo baskets, but you can also cook them in a regular Steamer or cooker, the way you make dhoklas or Idlis .

You can innovate on this recipe by adding other veggies or bean sprouts to the filling, but make sure you choose colourful, juicy and crisp veggies to achieve the right appearance and to get the mild crunch that makes Momos so enjoyable!

Follow our step by step photos on how to prepare veg momos. Vegetable Momos is a popular street food with a filling of chopped vegetables which can be steamed or made in a pressure cooker. Nothing like a yummy Momos starter flavoured with ginger garlic and gives you that kick when you add soy sauce.

Serve along with Vegetable Chow Mein and Chinese Fried Rice .
