C - MoMo (Dumplings) is my leftover MoMo remedy. We Nepalese have the tendency of always finishing off Achar (tomato sauce) that we make to go with the MoMos. C - MoMo is basically spicy, hot and tomato goodness. The beauty of this recipe is that you can also use store bought dumplings and it will still taste amazing. It is very simple to make and delicious on your palate. So here is C - MoMo. For MoMo Recipe check out my older post (http://www.nickspalate.com/2011/12/momo.html)
- MoMo (20 - 30 pieces)
- 4 ripe plum tomatoes
- 5-6 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 ginger
- 3 green chilies
- 4 tbs of tomato ketchup
- 1 tbs of Worcestershire sauce (optional)
- 3 tbs of Chili Sauce
- 3-4 tbs of soy sauce
- 1 red onion diced
- 3 green onions (scallions) chopped
- 1 red bell pepper julienne
Here is where I get some amazing flavor for my C - MoMo. Cut your tomatoes in half, together with ginger & garlic and broil them in an oven. Just make sure you don't broil the ginger and garlic too much. About 3-4 minutes is more than enough. For tomatoes about 6-8 minutes.
After the ingredients are broiled, chop and puree them in a food processor. Let it rest.
In a hot pan, add some cooking oil and brown your MoMos. Just slightly so that you get a crispy skin.
In a pan hot pan add small amount of oil and sautee the onion, green chili, bell pepper and scallions.
After sauteing the ingredients for about 3-4 minutes, add the ketchup, chili sauce, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. I put Worcestershire sauce because it give the dish a tangy and sweet taste to the dish. Cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the MoMos together with the puree of tomatoes, ginger & garlic. Stir just once and close the lid and turn off the stove. Let it rest for about 3-4 minutes before serving.
C - MoMo is ready to be served. Just make sure you have a good drink to go with it :) Beer preferred !
