Another fun Top Tens event by Caitlin at Food Nerd. This one’s called ‘Blog Envy’  This month we had to compile a list of the recipes from blogs that we’ve been ‘meaning to make’..So I pulled out my bookmarks folder and sorted to arrive at these top ten recipes… Oh there’s more, we’ve got to make one of the recipes from the list! but before that the list!

10. Momos by World Foodie Guide

And I made the momos! World Foodie Guide’s blog doesn’t quite have a very detailed description of the recipe so I made my own just getting the general idea from the site.

‘Momos’ are a Tibetan version of the dumpling. It’s basically a wet flour wrapper that’s filled with any stuffing you like, mostly ground meat and spices and the dough is folded over the stuffing and pinched together to form a dumpling. These dumplings are steamed and eaten with a dipping sauce.

I had this beautiful red cabbage in my vegetable draw and I tossed it up with equal portions of mushrooms to make the juiciest momos that I’ve ever tasted.

What you need:

for the momo wrapper

2 cups whole flour (wayyy better results with all purpose.. but you know me 😉

water to knead

oil for greasing

For the filling:

1 cup chopped red cabbage

1 cup chopped mushroom

1 green chili

1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1.5 tsp Chinese five spice powder

1 tsp lemon juice

salt as per taste

What to do:

1. Make the wrapper: knead the flour and water to make a soft, elastic dough. Shape into small balls. Cover and keep aside.

2. Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a large bowl

3. Roll out each ball and spoon a bit of the filing in the centre

4. Pinch the edges together and secure on top. Ensure that there is absolutely no way for the filling to get out of the wrapper

5. Steam in a greased steamer for 20 minutes. That’s it!

I just loved the color till I noticed my stained chopping board…

Oh who cares about the stains? the finished result was soo good!

So you’re wondering  I know she made the momos but what in the world is that white/red thingie?

It’s Hummus with paprika!

Now you’re thinking what kind of person eats a middle-eastern condiment with a Tibetan dumpling?

well I do. Great combination btw!

I’m really enjoying the top tens event! thanks again Caitlin! do hop over to her blog and check out the next top tens!
