For the momos recipe dough, mix the flour and salt first. Make a well in the center and add the water.
Mix the whole content and work the dough out for a short time until smooth. Keep aside covered with a cloth for 20 minutes to rest.
In the mean time, grate your carrot and cabbage thin. Chop your onion small. Heat up a pan and add 1 Tablespoon Oil and fry the onion first translucent, then add the grated carrot and cabbage and stir fry frequently while adding in the ginger garlic paste, salt, pepper, ajinomoto, coriander, vinegar and water. Stir fry until the vegetables are all soft and cooked and until the mixture is more dry. Keep aside to let cool a bit.
In a mixing bowl add the grated cheese and the previously fried vegetable mixture.
Combine the whole content well and keep aside.
Grab your dough and work it out again shortly with some extra flour so that it doesn't stick on.
Form into a big fat sausage and cut same sized pieces. Roll those in turn into smooth balls. Flatten and continue to roll them out into thin roundish circles.
If you want to make crescent shaped momos then place some of the filling (about 1 ½ Tablespoon full) onto one side more towards the center of the rolled out flat dough.
Fold over one side, wet the ending with a drop of water and twist in edges as shown. Do that with the remaining dough or...
shape the dumplings into buns by placing some of the momos recipe filling (again about 1 ½ Tablespoons of the filling) into the center. Wet the edge and fold in 3 sides to the center and hold and fold in the new 3 corners to the center.
Press and twist it at the center together so that it is properly sealed. Do that with the remaining dough or choose the crescent version.
Heat up a pan or deep frying pan (I used a simple pan because I wanted to save oil but I suggest that you use a deep frying pan or the Western style home deep frying machines) and wait for the oil to get hot. The oil should never smoke, that's very unhealthy and dangerous too!
To test if the oil is hot enough just take a piece of dough and drop it in. If it bubbles, it's a good sign and you can go ahead and drop a batch of the momos.
Fry the momos for a few minutes first on one side until golden and then turn and fry on the other side until golden. Take out from the oil and drain excess oil on a paper towel.
