sweet momos


ingredients:
all purpose flour-
roasted and powdered flax seeds
gud 

directions:
make the dough. If you want to make momo dough for four people, use about 3 cups of flour and 3/4 cups of water.  Mix the flour and water very well by hand and keep adding water until you make a pretty smooth ball of dough. Then knead the dough very well until the dough is flexible. Now leave your dough in the pot with the lid on while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. You should not let the dough dry out, or it will be hard to work with.

for momo filling:
add gud and flax seeds powder
Shaping the Momo'sWhen your dough and filling are both ready, it is time for the tricky part of making the dumpling shapes. For this, place the dough on a chopping board and use a rolling pin to roll it out quite thinly. you are ready to add the filling and make the momo shapes. There are many, many different choices for momo shapes.two of the most common, the basic round momo, and the half-moon shapes. (Of these two, the half-moon shape is easier.)

Finally, you should boil water in a large steamer. Oil the steamer surface lightly before putting the momo's in, so they won't stick to the metal, then place as many as you can without touching each other. Add the momo's after the water is already boiling. Steam the momo's for 10 minutes, [or microwave it].then serve them hot,or cold.
