Mutton Flower Dumplings

How many dumplings have you eaten this week? Probably not enough.

Ingredients

  • For the filling:
  • 500 gms lamb mince
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil
  • For the dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Water

Steps

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and fry it in little oil, and cook till all the natural stock from the lamb evaporates. Keep aside to cool.
  2. Then knead the dough to a soft consistency. Roll out the dough into small circles and make a momo basket.
  3. Begin with holding the flat circular dough in your left hand and putting a tablespoon of the filling in the middle of the dough.
  4. Then you have to fold the two edges of the half-circle so that there is no open edge in your half-circle, and the filling is completely enclosed in the dough. You will now have the basic half-moon shape, and you can make your momo pretty by pinching and folding along the curved edge of the half-circle.
  5. Start at one tip of the half-moon, and fold over a very small piece of the dough, pinching down.
  6. Continue folding and pinching from the starting point, moving along the edge until you reach the other tip of the half-moon. Now steam the momos in a steamer or fry them.
  7. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.
