Veg Momos

(makes 10-12)
3/4 all purpose flour/ maida
Water as needed
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp oil

For stuffing:
1 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped capsicum
1 tblsp finely chopped garlic
4-5 spring onion sprigs
1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper (black)
1 tsp soya sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tblsp oil

Mix flour, salt and oil in a bowl and add water to make a smooth pliable dough. Just like our poori dough. Keep aside covered.
Heat a pan with oil, add garlic, and finely chopped white part of the spring onion. Give a stir in high flame. Add the chopped veggies, sugar and fry in high flame for a minute.
Add salt, pepper, soy sauce and mix well. Lastly add finely chopped green part of the spring onion and mix for a minute in medium flame. Switch off and keep aside.
I rolled the dough into a big disc and used a big lid to cut into smaller discs. After that I again roll to make it more thin. Keep some stuffing we prepared in the middle.
Fold it to make momo shapes. Steam it in a steamer spaced properly, for 5 minutes.
Serve hot with hot chilli sauce or you can try this tomato garlic dip.
