Hot steamed meat Momos are more than welcome during the IPL fest. These pretty soft dumplings stuffed with lamb mince taste delicious with the fresh sweet chilli sauce.


For the Stuffing

500 grams of lamb mince

1 teaspoon of chilli sauce

½ teaspoon of pepper powder

½ teaspoon of turmeric powder

2 teaspoons of chilli powder

2 ½ teaspoons of coriander powder

1 tablespoon of vinegar

2 tablespoons of soya sauce

1 tablespoon of garam masala

A pinch of Ajinomoto

Salt to taste


For the Dough Preparation

2 cups All purpose flour



For the Sweet Chilli Sauce

4 red chillies

1 cup sugar

½ cup vinegar

¼ cup water


Pressure Cooker, Fry Pan, Blender

Step By Step Method

  • The ingredients listed under the stuffing are combined well with the lamb mince and stir fried with some oil in a hot fry pan till the moisture from the meat evaporates and the flavours are blended in well.

    A soft dough is prepared using all-purpose flour, salt and water. These are then separated into small balls to roll them out into small circles.

    The lamb mince stuffing is placed in the centre of this circle and closed up into half moon shape crescents. The edge is sealed starting from one tip by lightly folding the adjacent edge of the dough onto the front edge, giving it a folded and pinched effect.This process is completed along the entire edge so that the stuffing is well enclosed. All such prepared Momos are steamed till well cooked.

    The ingredients of the sweet chilli sauce are boiled on a high flame and simmered till the sugar dissolves. This mixture is cooled down and refrigerated. Serve this delicious thick sauce along with the Momos.
