When it comes to street food, who can resist the mouthwatering allure of momos? From cheese-loaded delights to chicken-packed options, tandoori twists, and classic veggie wonders, there is a momo for every palate. Each of us holds a steadfast favourite close to our hearts. Yet, for those conscious of health and the gym buffs among us, momos can sometimes feel like a guilty pleasure due to their all-purpose flour outer layer. But wait, a street vendor in Lucknow has unveiled the secret to guilt-free momos. In an Instagram video, she proudly presents momos wrapped in a cabbage leaf and offers a healthy twist to this beloved snack. However, the die-hard momo lovers were not ready to embrace this unconventional creation.
In the video, the vendor skillfully takes a cabbage leaf, lays it out on the counter, and wraps it around the momo filling. Once the cabbage-wrapped momos are sealed, she gently steams them to perfection. After steaming, she adds a drizzle of oil to a pan, stir-fries the momos on both sides and elegantly presents them on a plate alongside some chutneys. To add a final touch of flavour, she sprinkles sesame seeds before serving these wholesome momos.
