  1. Hi my name is harsha, I went through your recipe of making momos & I tried at My house making of momos by using your recipe you don’t believe everyone at my house like my momos with red chutney…. Super taste. Thank you very much.

  2. Hi, I made momos and it turned out very well. Thanks for the recipe. I have a question, is there a way to get even more softer momos like how we get them street side? What I mean is if there is any other way of making the dough to get very soft momos?

    Thanks,
    Mamatha Sharma

  3. Hi,,
    I made these momos today and my son really loved it. Thanks for sharing the recipe
    Only one query, my momos were a bit flat. Is it because of less-filling ??
    Thanks
    Nidhi
