  • 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


  • 01

    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.

  • 02

    Mean while you can prepare the filling. Crumble paneer by using the pulse option in your mixer.Just grind once to crumble it finely.

  • 03

    Heat a heavy bottomed pan with oil. Add ginger and garlic paste. I used my garlic press. Fry in low flame for a minute.

  • 04

    Add finely chopped onion and fry it until transparent.

  • 05

    Follow by red chilli powder, garam masala powder, turmeric and salt. Give it a stir.

  • 06

    Add the paneer crumble and fry until oil separates.

  • 07

    Take care not to let the paneer get burnt. Keep stirring.

  • 08

    Add finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Switch off the flame. Let it cool down.

  • 09

    Now take out the dough from cover and knead well for couple of mins or until smooth.

  • 10

    Divide the dough into 3. Roll each ball into a big circle and use a small lid to cut out small discs from it.

  • 11

    To make momos, take one circle we cut out, roll it again into thin disc.

  • 12

    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.
