No one can deny that momos are ever delightful! While you can always savour momos that are widely available at street-side carts, nothing beats homemade momos. Usually, you get two options for momos, vegetarian - with a filling of cabbage, carrots and capsicum, and non-vegetarian momos- with a filling of minced chicken. But, here we bring you the recipe of soya paneer momos, which give a creamy twist to the regular momos with a stuffing of grated cottage cheese (paneer). Ground soya chunks or soya granules add density and a nutty flavour to the momos. Both the foods are super rich in proteins, so you won't mind feeding your family with it. Although, this recipe uses all-purpose flour, you can replace it with wheat flour to make the momos healthier.
Soya Paneer Momo Recipe:
1 cup maida
1 cup soya granules
1 cup grated paneer
1 onion, finely chopped onions
Half green bell pepper, finely chopped
Salt and black pepper to taste
5-6 garlic cloves, minced
Half teaspoon grated ginger
Step 1 - Soak soya granules in water.
Step 2 - Knead dough with maida, 1 teaspoon oil and warm water. Cover it and keep it aside for at least 30 minutes.
Step 3 - Heat some oil in a pan. Add garlic and saute till it releases its raw aroma.
Step 4 - Add ginger and onions and saute till onions turn brown in colour.
Step 5 - Add soya, bell pepper, salt and pepper. Let the veggies cook.
Step 6 - Add grated paneer in the end. Mix well and turn off the stove.
Step 7 - Now roll small, paper-thin, translucent rotis from the dough. Dab some water on its edges. Fill them with soya paneer filling and cover them properly.
Step 8 - Grease the plates of idli moulds with some oil. Place the momos on idli moulds and steam them like you steam regular momos or idlis.
