    Coasty's Note:

    When I was at Uni I shared with a number of other students, one of them a Tibetan guy who for the 5 years was terribly home sick. He would make all the foods he missed including homemade beer (a Tibetan tradition apparently) and then invite friends around. There is a very intricate way to seal the momos or you can go the easy path and just fold in half. The traditional way is to draw up 4 points around the circular dough and seal leaving a hole in the middle. When cooked you pour some sauce in the hole.

    Units: US | Metric


    • 3 cups roasted barley flour



    Dipping Sauce



    1. 1
      Mix flour and the water; knead and form into a ball.
    2. 2
      Set aside covered with a wet towel or plastic wrap in a warm place for 30 minute
    3. 3
      Bring a large steamer of water to the boil.
    4. 4
      Cut dough into 12 - 18 pieces and roll into small flat circles.
    5. 5
      Mash together all filling ingredients.
    6. 6
      Place a spoonful of filling in the centre of each dough circle.
    7. 7
      You can then easily fold in halft and crimp the edges to seal - you end up with a semi circle package. Alternatively you can follow the instructions above.
    8. 8
      Place momos in a steamer either lined with lettuce leaves or baking paper and steam on high for 30 minute
    9. 9
      Make the dipping sauce by combining all ingredients. The chili oil is optional.

      Mix the salsa together just before serving.

      I can see why he would get homesick and make these. They truly taste like something someone's grandmother would make- I just can't believe that now I can make them too! I had left over filling so I used it to fill some left-over wraps I had from a different recipe and steamed them as well as made some fried wontons. We loved all the ways! I'm not sure what the finished product was supposed to look like but I sure can say that they tasted wonderful. Thanks Coasty. Made for ZWT 6 by an Unruly.
