The viral recipe isn’t like the original dumpling recipe. The stark difference is in the shape. Usually, momos are made by stuffing vegetables and meat pieces in a sheet of dough. The dough is sealed in the traditional way, using pleats and folds. Then, each momo is steamed before garnishing or frying it.
In the viral recipe, the momos are not separately made. Nor are they given the traditional shape. Instead, they are made by using an ice-cube tray. The tray holds the sheets of dough while the holes consist of the stuffing. This is steamed and served. The momo gets the shape of the ice cube tray.
Here’s The Full Recipe For Ice Cube Momos:
- You’ll need flour, oil, water, vinegar and salt to make the dough.
- Rest the dough for a few minutes, and then roll it into thin sheets.
- You can use cabbage, carrots, French beans, paneer, chillies, garlic and butter for the filling.
- Add oil to the ice tray and then spread a layer of the dough sheet.
- Place the filling, cheese and your favourite sauces in the holes of the tray.
- Cover all of it with another sheet and cut the edges.
- Keep it aside for a few minutes, and then steam it over water in a shallow pan.
- Your momos are ready to be served.
