Total Time : 45 Min


Serves : 5
  • 1 cup Wheat flour/ atta

  • 1 tsp Salt – As needed

  • 1.5 cup Water – as needed

  • 1 cup Paneer cubes thawed,heaped

  • 1 Onion

  • 1 tsp Ginger paste

  • 2 tsp Garlic paste

  • 3/4 tsp Red chilli powder

  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder

  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric

  • 3 tbsp Coriander leaves

  • 2 tsp Oil


  • First prepare the outer dough with atta, salt and 1/4 cup water plus 1 or 2 tbsp as per needed.The dough should be non sticky. Keep it covered airtight in a polythene cover for minimum 10 mins.
  • Mean while you can prepare the filling. Crumble paneer by using the pulse option in your mixer.Just grind once to crumble it finely.
  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan with oil. Add ginger and garlic paste. I used my garlic press. Fry in low flame for a minute.
  • Add finely chopped onion and fry it until transparent.
  • Follow by red chilli powder, garam masala powder, turmeric and salt. Give it a stir.
  • Add the paneer crumble and fry until oil separates.
  • Take care not to let the paneer get burnt. Keep stirring.
  • Add finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Switch off the flame. Let it cool down.
  • Now take out the dough from cover and knead well for couple of mins or until smooth.
  • Divide the dough into 3. Roll each ball into a big circle and use a small lid to cut out small discs from it.
  • To make momos, take one circle we cut out, roll it again into thin disc.
  • Smear the edges with a drop of water. Fill it in the middle with 1 & 1/2 tsp of the prepared filling and fold to seal the momos.Pinch and make the sealed portion thin.
  • Heat a steamer and steam for 5-6 minutes or until the over cover is shiny.
