I finally got around to making momos. We had a quiet Easter here, Wesley was shooting a film for school, we did family day on Saturday and then just stayed home and got some gardening done on Sunday. The weather was beautiful and we had a nice day at home doing much of nothing.
There are many resources for making momos online and they are really simple. I used this page
www.yowangdu.com for a guide, but mostly made it up as I went along.
The mixture above is a sauce recipe I found at the same website, called sepen. It is a Tibetan hot sauce, but I swear it is spawned from the devil! I have never had a sauce this hot, go easy..... next time I will cut way way back on the chiles so I can eat more than a molecule of it.
Having a clay/handbuilding background really comes in handy when you are working with dough. Good hand dexterity is important for making these little pouches. I do think next time I will just make the half moon shape and be done with it though, much easier. I changed the filling a bit to fit what I had available in the frig. I used green onion, bok choy, mushrooms, cabbage, celery and cilantro, but there are endless ingredients you could use.
It's pretty much a dim sum dumpling, but I like saying momo better than dim sum :)
This week my little girl will turn 21 and she is growing into that age quite nicely. Looking forward to celebrating her birthday on Friday! Hope you all have a great Spring week!!!
PS: can't get any typepad blogs to load this morning, wtf?
also I tried leaving comments on several blogs yesterday and they wouldn't post, so if I am not commenting on your blog, I might have tried..... ugh, technology!
