Vegetable Wheat flour Momos and Schezwan sauce

Vegetable wheat Momos.

Veg momos, a steamed dumpling stuffed with mixed vegetables, is a delicious snack food enjoyed in Tibet region. This dish is very popular  in Nepal. This vegetarian momo recipe uses a delicious assortment of mixed vegetables as the filling. Today I have tried momos with wheat flour instead of all purpose flour for more healthier version.

Schezwan sauce is made with red chillies, onions, garlic and little ketchup. Vegetable momos with schezwan sacue are a good combination. Let us see how to make this healthy version of momos and sauce.
