Momo Recipe

Below is a very tasty recipe for making Nepalese momo. To make Tibetan momo, just remove the green vegetables.



2 cups of plain flour

3/4 cup of water


500g minced meat (buffalo or yak, Pork is great if those are not available!)

4-6 spring onions

1 tbsp fresh crushed ginger

1 1/2 tbsp crushed garlic

1 1/2 tsp salt Handful of coriander/cilantro

2 green chillies (remove seeds for less spice)

2 tsp garam masala

2 tbsp oil


  • Directions:

    Finely chop all the filling ingredients and mix together. Mix the wrapper ingredients to make a dough. Roll the dough and make circles 6-10 cm across.

    Place a dollop of mixture in the middle of each circle and wet the edges to glue easier. Stick the sides together strongly to stop leakage. Pleat if capable!

    Boil a pan of water with a steaming pot on top. Oil the steaming pot to stop sticking. Place a few momo into the steamer and steam for 5-7 minutes.

    Serve with a tomato and coriander sauce!
