Veg Momos with Multigrain Atta

Hello friends, as you must have already guessed, today’s post is a recipe. And, I’ll tell you how you can make Veg Momos with Multigrain Atta and give this recipe a healthy twist. I am pretty sure, this is going to be an ultimate hit with kids as well as adults.

Do you love momos?

I can imagine heads nodding. Well, I haven’t met a single person who said they don’t love momos. But I’m sure there are some who have no idea what’s a momo. So, for the uninitiated ones, momo is a type of steamed dumplings stuffed with some filling. Nowadays, there are many varieties of momos. You can have pan-fried momos or deep-fried momos or even grilled momos. You can even have momo soup.

But, for this post, we are going to stick to steamed veg momos with multigrain atta.

Veg momos with multigrain atta can be a perfect snack for kids.

Steamed Veg Momos

Before moving on with the post, I want to clearly state that I am not a great cook and every day in the kitchen is a learning for me. I started cooking only when the pandemic hit and we were left with no choice but to cook for ourselves. I feel that I still can’t survive alone in the kitchen hence my husband takes care of half of the things like kneading dough, peeling, cutting and chopping vegetables, doing the dishes, and most importantly taking care of the breakfast.

Now what do you do if you are not a great cook but you are a foodie and also have kids?

You experiment! 

I am a mom and I am not a perfect cook. And, that’s okay!

I would like to mention here that I got this idea of making atta (whole wheat flour) momos from a friend on Instagram but because I am not too good at following recipes to the T, I screwed it up the first time.

And, I didn’t try making it again for almost a year. Then one day, my son saw momos in a cartoon show and he requested me to make some for him. Well, I couldn’t say no because even I was craving for momos. So, let’s straight jump to the recipe now.

In this post, I'll tell you how you can make Veg Momos with Multigrain Atta (flour) & give this recipe a healthy twist. It can be a perfect snack for kids.

How to Make Veg Momos with Multigrain Atta?

If you don’t want to read the recipe, you may jump directly to the end of this blog where I have attached the recipe video.

I am dividing this recipe into 3 steps.

  1. Preparing the dough
  2. Preparing the stuffing
  3. Filling & Steaming the momos

What you will need to make veg momos with multigrain atta?

1. Multigrain Atta (I have used Aashirwad Atta)

2. Vegetables of your choice

3. Soya chunks (I have used Nutrela soya chunks)

4. Crushed black pepper, Red chili powder, Salt

Step 1 – Preparing the dough

This is the easiest part, no rocket science in this. You have to prepare the dough in the same way you prepare for making roti (chapati). Just don’t keep it too soft.

Also, add a little oil or ghee while kneading the dough.

No need to add baking soda or yeast.

Dough with multigrain atta

I have used multigrain atta (flour) to make it more nutritious for my son. You may use whole wheat flour as well.

Once the dough is prepared, keep it aside for resting.

 2 – Preparing the stuffing

Now, this step may take around 30-45 mins since this requires cutting and chopping vegetables and cooking them as well.

You will need 3-4 vegetables of your choice. I have taken carrots, red/green/yellow capsicums, onions. (You may also take french beans, cabbage, spring onions, and mushrooms).

Finely chopped Veggies and soya chunks

I have also used soya chunks for filling to make it protein-rich. (You may also add paneer or tofu).

Now, finely chop all the veggies. If you want to use soya chunks then first soak them in hot water and after 10 mins squeeze the water out and finely chop them too.

Stir fry veggies and soya chunks to make veg momos with multigrain atta

The next step is to stir fry all the chopped veggies.

Take some oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, add all the chopped veggies, stir fry for 5-10 mins on medium-high flame. Just before turning off the flame, add salt, black pepper, and red chili powder and mix well.

Now, keep it aside to cool down a bit, and alongside start your steamer.

3 – Filling & Steaming the momos

This step is the trickiest of all. Please do check the video for this step.

You have to take a small ball of dough and roll it into a thin sheet. Now, add the filling and fold it to give the shape of a momo.

Roll the dough into small and thin sheets

Be very careful while doing this step. Keep the dough balls small so that your sheet is also small and thin. This way your momos will cook fast.

After filling the momos, it’s time to put them in the steamer. It took me around 30 mins to steam one batch of momos.

Steam for 30 mins

Your yummy and healthy veg momos with multigrain atta are ready to be served. My son loved these momos!

    I am going to try momos with atta, Neha. Isn’t the outer very thick with atta? I use cabbage and corn mainly for stuffing or paneer carrot.

      I feel the covering was thick because I didn’t roll it thin enough. If you will take smaller dough balls and roll them into thin sheets then the covering will not be this thick. I should try the cabbage and corn stuffing too.

    Oh my gosh! I’m literally drooling. We love Momos here. But somehow I’ve always felt it was tough to make. Should try your recipe. 🙂 #MyFriendAlexa #TinasPicks

    Yes I love momos too and yesterday itself had it. Last year when everything was closed, I tried making it first timr and it turned out very good. However it is very time consuming.

    Interesting and so healthy. Can I add soya granules instead of chunks? Because I am always unable to squeeze the water out properly.

      Absolutely, yes you can use soya granules. I had soya chunks available so I used that. Do try it out 🙂
