“North Indian, Himalayan, Nepali curry dumplings filled with ground meat of choice and eaten with dipping of choice. This is my favorite food to eat and has been a family recipe for ages. Does require some effort but the fruits are well worth it.”

Directions

  1. To make the dipping sauce, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1 clove of garlic and the chopped onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cover and reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon cilantro. Pour sauce into a blender and carefully blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Combine the ground pork, 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped onion, green onions, garam masala, curry powder, 2 cloves of garlic, ginger paste, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Place a heaping teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of a dumpling wrapper. Moisten the edge of the wrapper with a few drops of water. Fold the dumpling in half into a half moon shape. Repeat with the remaining dumplings.
  3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the dumplings, recover, and steam until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Oh my goodness! These were easy and SO delicious. I spent some time in Northern India and Nepal over the spring/summer and ate A LOT of these puppies. I needed to bring something for a multicultural potluck and thought, "well how hard could momo's be?" The plate emptied lightning fast and everyone raved about them. Used sausage meat because I couldn't find ground pork. I also cooked them in a frying pan with a little olive oil (5 min uncovered, 5 min covered w/ out turning) because I didn't have anything to steam them in. Yum. The dipping sauce was perfect. I used a hot red pepper in it. Yum. Thanks for the recipe!

My husband had momos before but this is the first time I am eating this. Very tasty! Although my husband said he didn't recall the dipping sauce to taste like this. This is also the first time I have used wonton wrappers. Did not go well, I used bamboo steamers but the dumplings stuck fiercely to it. We decided to use the throw them in boiling water instead. The wrappers became very soggy... Next time, I will cook the filling first, wrap it then pan fry it or something... And I might use ground beef instead, just for kicks.
