  5. In a separate bowl mix in the amaranth and rice flour along with a pinch of salt. Add water and knead it into a dough. Allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes (cover the dough with a soft muslin cloth and set it aside).
  6. Divide the dough into smaller portions and roll out each smaller portion into a thin circular sheet.
  7. Fill the stuffing in these thin sheets, then fold the edges into the shapes of a momo.

  9. Serve hot with any homemade chutney if you would like.

  • The stuffing can be replaced with grated coconut, nuts, jaggery and cardamom to satisfy to the sweet buds too.
