Chinese Veg Momos

Momos is a kind of dumpling(cooked ball of dough) very famous in chinese cuisine. It is also famous in Nepal,Tibet and the himalayan part of  India. It has been quite a while since I have been wanting to try making momos at home. Yesterday while browsing the net I thought of giving a search for veg momos. After so many search I decided to try on my own style because it was that easy receipe to try. You can also try meat filling,cheese filling and snickers filling too for sweet momos.
