Recipe Notes

Notes:

  • Squeeze excess water from the cabbage cos the excess water can ruin the momos and make then soggy. Do not remove too much water cos this will make your momos dry from the inside.
  • For this particular dish you have to fry the momos as we will be using skewers.
  • For the first method of cooking you can use steamed momos if your wish.
  • The serving salad is made with onions, cabbage and chat masala

TIPS:

  • Please soak the wooden skewers for 30 minutes in water before using it. This will avoid them from burning.
