Corn Momos

There is a special Momos Shop around my sister’s classes where they make variety of Momos. My sister always use to ask me to make Momos at home but I kept on delaying it. Then Tupperware sent me their newly launched Steam It for testing purpose and I finally decided to make Momos in it. So here it is, my first Momos attempt.

How to make Momos:


How to make Momos

  1. Take the kneaded dough and make 10 – 12 equal round balls out of it.
  2. Take one ball at a time, flatten them with a rolling pin into round shape. Try to keep the middle area thick and the ends thin. (Check note 2)
  3. Put some fillings in the center of the rolled dough. Pick up the end from 1 side and make some pleats of it. Do this with the remaining 3 ends too. Now join all the pleated sides and press it tightly so that it doesn’t open.
  4. Alternatively, you can pick all the sides together, join them and twist the joined ends clockwise from the top. Or you can even shape them like Singoli or gujhiya.
  5. Make all the momos in the same way.
  6. Steam the momos for 10 – 15 minutes until they turn translucent.

Momos in Tupperware Steam It


  • Keep rest of the dough balls covered while you are working with one. Or else they will become dry.
  • For keeping the center of the rolled dough thick and the ends thin, roll only half of the dough with rolling pin. After that use your fingers to flatten the ends.
  • Use a wok steamer or idli/dhokla steamer for steaming momos. I used my tupperware steam it.
  • Adjust spices according to your taste.
  • You can fill anything in the momos. The covering and steaming process will be same everytime.
