Fried Momos

I had left over vegetables from my hakka noodles preparation. I was thinking about what to do with it. Wanted to try the steam momos. However my kids preferred fried one. So I have decided to do the fried one. We have big fan club for momos in office. However whenever we go out to have momos we end up working over weekend so we have decided not to eat to avoid working over weekend. So it has been  while since I had momos. It came out crispy and extremely tasty. Initially I wanted to pack to office but in the end it is not even enough for us :-) 

Maida - 1 cup
Water - as needed
Oil - 2 tablespoon
Salt - Per taste
Oil for deep frying

For Stuffing (It is same as what I had for Hakka Noodles) 
Pls refer to Hakka Noodles for step by step pic

Mixed vegetables - 5 Cups (Capsicum mixed color, Cabbage, mushroom, carrot) finely chopped
Spring onions - 2 (chopped finely)
Chilli sauce - 1/2 teaspoon
Tomato sauce - 1/2 teaspoon
Soy sauce - 1.5 teaspoon
Green Chilli sauce - 1/2 teaspoon
Pepper powder - 1 to 2 teaspoon adjust to your taste
Salt per taste
Oil - 4 teaspoon


Mix flour, salt and oil together. Add water to make a smooth pliable dough. Just like our poori dough. Keep aside covered for 1 hour.
Cut all the vegetables into thin strips.. I have done it fine because my kids prefer it fine. Keep it aside. Heat the oil. When it is hot add Garlic and ginger and fry till garlic is in light brown color. Add onion and fry till it is brown in color
When it is hot add carrot, Capcicum, cabbage, mushroom and green onion one by one at regular interval (30 sec gap) and fry them in high flame. Don't over cook the vegetables. Vegetables should be crisp
Add salt, pepper and all the sauces. Mix well.  Cook for another 2-3 mins. Keep it aside
Take a small dough and make a ball. And roll it into small disc.

Keep a teaspoon of vegetable at the center and fold into momos shape.Make momos and keep it aside. 
Heat the kada and add oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot add prepared momos. fry in medium flame till it is brown in color. Take out and drain the extra oil and put it on tissue paper to drain extra oil
Enjoy this with tomato or chilli sauce
