Paneer Momos with Momos chutney recipe - How to Make Paneer Momos - Kids friendly recipe - Snacks Recipe

I got introduced to Momos after moving to Singapore. My Chinese colleagues really love momos from this Indo Chinese restaurant. After my kids started to attend school they got used to Chinese food. Momos is one their favourite dishes. I normally make Veg momos / vegetable momos  and fried momos. However both are with all purpose flour cover. However recently I have started using wheat flour. It came out good too. So for this recipe I have used Wheat flour. you can try out all purpose flour. Paneer is every kid's favourite so you can do this as an after school snack or as a teatime snack for weekends or holidays.
