Eager to know how to make a healthy version of momos?
See MUTTON WHEAT MOMOS
My version of momo chutney is oil-free, easy-to-make which you can make in no time. I use less spicy Kashmiri chilli variety for this chutney which gives a nice colour to the chutney yet not fiery enough to make us cry. Let us look at the easiest momo chutney recipe.

- Cook until all the water gets evaporated, and turn off the flame.

- Transfer the cooled ingredients to a mixer jar.

- As the ingredients are cooked in the water, you need not add water while grinding the chutney. Adding water may affect the right chutney consistency!
- Roughly chopping the tomatoes ensures easier peeling off the skins after blanching them.
- Pick Guntur chilli variety for an extra-spicy momo chutney and Kashmiri variety for a colourful, non-spicy version. I prefer to use the non-spicy version as my kid has to enjoy the taste of it.
