i have posted already the traditional momos recipe made with grated fresh vegetables. basically, i had used veggies like carrots, cabbage, peas, spring onions and red onions. but in this recipe, the indian cottage cheese or paneer takes the precedence with the veggies playing the supporting role. therefore, these paneer momos are generally more filling as compared to traditional ones. in addition to these, paneer momo can also be served as a side dish to most of the indo chinese rice dishes. i personally like it when served with schezwan fried rice and any manchurian sauce gravy.

furthermore, some easy and important tips suggestions and variations for a perfect and soft paneer momos recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used plain flour or maida to make momos sheet. but some may find unhealthy to use plain flour. hence you can use wheat flour to have a healthy twist. secondly, use fresh and moist paneer for this recipe. moist paneer can be easily grated and also feels juicy when eaten. lastly, you can either steam it or you fry these momos till crisp. i personally like the steamed one but it is a completely individual preference.
