Soy Chunks Vegetarian Momo

Momo is a very popular dish in Nepal and almost all Nepalese love them. I usually make chicken or pork momo but sometimes I have vegetarians in my guest list so I used to make cabbage and onion veggie momo which I have to admit is not very as yummy. Recently one of my cousins made some vegetarian momo which was as yummy was the non-veg ones so I had to try and learn how to make it.

The vegetarian momo was made with Soy chunks and paneer (cottage cheese).


  • 2 cups Soy Chunks (soak in water for an hour)

vegetable momo (2)

  • 1 medium size onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup of finely chopped Cabbage
  • 100 gm Paneer cut into small pieces

vegetable momo (1)

  • 3 table spoons soy sauce
  • 2 table spoons coriander powder
  • 2 table spoons cumin powder
  • 1 table spoon red chili powder
  • 3 table spoons oil
  • 1 cup of fresh coriander finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 packet momo wrapper (30 pieces)


Note: You can make the momo achar beforehand as per linked method and put it in the fridge.
