Fish Momos – Steamed balls with fish filling

Every time I pass-by those ‘Momo’ stands in the marts it’s a temptation too hard to resist. The tasty and soft momos invite me to indulge in them, like a child waiting to relish her pink candy-floss! And so yesterday I decided to make these momos in my kitchen. They tasted awesome and we relished every crumb of it. For vegetarians instead of fish you can use grated vegetables like carrot, cabbage, capsicum or mashed potato. The fish momos can be served as a starter/appetizer with white tartar sauce or tomato ketchup. So go ahead and surprise your guests with home-made momos at Party-Time!
