Ingredients

  • 4 Potatoes
  • 1 Onions
  • 1 egg

    Method.

    1. Grate the potatoes and onion using a hand grater or a food processor.
    2. Put the grated potatoes and onion through a fine strainer and press it it with a wooden spoon to squeeze the liquid out. Try to squeeze all the liquid out.
    3. Discard the liquid. You will notice white powder on the bottom of the bowl. Don’t discard it.
    4. Add the potatoes to the white powder in the bowl. 
    5. Add the eggs, flour and salt and pepper to the potatoes and mix.
    6. Heat some oil in a nonstick pan. Add a spoonful of potato mixture, spreading it slightly. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until the pancakes are crispy and brown.

      ** The thinner you spread them. The quicker they cook.

      Steamed Momos with vegetable filling.

      In the streets of Sarojini market, delhi, there is a stand that sell this amazingly made chicken momos that makes your mouth water like a dog. He might not be approved by hygienist but some street food taste so nice that you tend to ignore the warnings people tell you about buying food in the streets of India. Ever since I went to India I have been in love with the curries, biryanis, sweets(gulab jamun)  and others (momos and parathas). Yes I have to admit I was skeptical at first but upon the first bite, I lost my focus, I just wanted to eat more indian food, till this day. I searched and searched online after I left India, until I found the best momos recipe. I tried and succeeded!!…

      **if center is thin and edges are  thick, your momos are going to stick to the steamer and will break while removing.
