For anyone who is on a pursuit to taste exotic and new flavours, should definitely give millet momos a try. Everyone loves momos, and you can find food stalls selling them in practically every corner of the city. But considering the present state of affairs, being quarantined at home with my family I decided to revive an old recipe and give it a healthy twist.

Momos for me are more than food. They are wrapped with love and my Maa would make it at home, and it was almost a family affair rolling and packing the Momos. I just can’t get enough of the millet momos recipe my mother taught me and I am so grateful for this steamed wonder.

These popular street panfried momos stand as the most favourite food for kids today. A versatile food that it is, we have a wide variety available from chicken, mutton to what we have here, vegetable millet momos. Since the kids love the dish so much, it is always great to make it at home. You just need to master the technique and you can twist them to suit your palate.

These millet momos are packed with healthy veggies like carrots and cabbage sauteed with onion, garlic and soya nuggets. The millet momos tastes delicious and makes a perfect snack for the kids as well. It is important that all ingredients are fresh and the Momos are prepared just before consumption because that’s the way they taste best!

Not for a fraction of second will I be compromising with the taste. In fact, along with taste, you will be adding more nutrition and freshness while enjoying this delicious platter at the comfort of your home.
