Instructions to prepare meat and wrapping the momo

  1. Preparing the stuffing: In one big bowl mix all the above ingredients. Make sure it’s thoroughly mixed. Let it sit in the refrigerator for 10 – 15 minutes.
  2. Preparing the patties: You can buy already made patties from some local Indian or Chinese store. That’s what I do.
  3. Wrapping: Please check the video instruction below for wrapping the Momo. Follow the instruction and use your own creativity as well. That’s the fun part of making Momo. Invite your guests to be part of it too.
  4. Steaming: Boil water in Momo streamer. When ready, put Momo on top shelf of the streamer. Steam Momo for at least 15 minutes and not more than 20 minutes on high heat.
