When i say ” SNACK ” … what is the first dish that strikes you ? I am damn sure, this if i ask my father, he will surely say something crispy,crunchy ..deep fried munchies. Ha ha…But now things have changed and most of us are cautious.We try to reduce deep fried snacks and instead choose healthy options without compromising on taste. So today i have for you all ” Veg Momos / Veg Dimsum ” – one of the most famous dish under Steamed / Healthy Snack category . Filled with mixed veggies , these steamed dumplings are an absolute healthy treat for anyone . Hot hot momos with a fiery Chilli Garlic Sauce…..aah Yummmm !!!!
Steaming is one of the healthiest and nutrituous ways of cooking techniques. I love steam cooked dishes as they are low cal, healthy ,tasty and nutient filled .A few days back when one of the most renowned brands ” Tupperware ” mailed me asking me if i could join hands with them in spreading awareness about healthy cooking and a healthy food lifestyle through “Tupperware – Steam It ” , I happily agreed to do so and be a part of the good cause. Tupper Ware Steamer is an engineered revolutionary product with features for safe & hygienic cooking. It has two steam vents on the cover which uplift the steam away from the handle for safety. The lid is dome shaped to drain the water to its side so food does not become soggy.Since it has 2 compartments , together you can steam differnt food stuff.
So when i received my hamper , I wanted to make something interesting using it and my head started thinking about various options, finally i decided to make Vegetable Momo’s using ” Tupperware – Steam It “.
Momo’s was something i had learnt even before i started blogging . Taste wise i can proudly say my momo’s with spicy dip are no less than any famous restuarant one’s . But look wise HeHe… its better not to compare . With 2 kids n other n number of jobs always queued up, i try to wind up the whole momo making session quickly. But yes that doesn’t mean there is any compromise in taste and health quotients The main thing to remember is roll the sheets as thin as possible towards the edges , make the filling crunchy and mildly spiced and never overcook it . I have taken step by step photo’s to make things easier for you all .Agree that making momo’s is slightly labour intensive procedure but the end result is definitely worth the effort. With practice the shapes can better & better. I happened to stumble upon a video in Youtube and loved it absolutely . If you want you too can have a look here .. loved the way Chef shapes his dumplings …
Without much talk , lets quickly get into making of Steamed Vegetable Momo’s ….
