Veg steamed momos

Momos are very popular street food in a Northern part of India. Veg Momos, a steamed or fried stuffed with mixed vegetables, is a delicious snack food enjoyed in Tibet region. Momos are getting very popular in other parts of India and you can easily prepare them at home by either steaming or deep frying.
The momos are delightful as a snack, but they can also make a light and satisfying meal for any time of the day.The momos are delightful as a snack, but they can also make a light and satisfying meal for any time of the day.
