  2. Place 1 or 2 tsp of vegetable stuffing in the center.
  3. Then make ball like kachori. Prepare all momos this way and keep them covered under a moist napkin.
  4. In a greased steamer pan or in idli moulds, place the momos keeping space between them so that they don’t touch each other.
  5. Steam momos for 5-6 minutes.
