Momos! The name of this amazing dish sets my pulse racing. I am a huge fan, rather huger-than-huge of Momos. I simply love them, no matter in what form they are, be it Tandoor, Steamed, or Fried. Momos are one thing that I can have it at any given hour of the day or night, or in any mood that I am in. It was then when I thought to make Momos, of a kind, which people can have during their fasts too. Hence, I just experimented with ‘Falhari Momos’.

I tried this new recipe at home this weekend, and yes, it involved Momos. As the festive season is approaching, starting with Navratri, where a lot of people observe fast, I thought I should try something that people can savour during this period.

- Fill in the Potato mixture in the centre of those chapattis, and then make a ‘potli’ (bag or sack) of those mixture filled chapattis.
- Make sure it is closed and secured from all the sides.
- Once the Oil is hot enough turn the flame low and fry the ‘potlis’ (the Momos) in the Oil until they turn golden.
- Strain them out of the Oil pan on to an absorbent paper.

- Be careful while frying.
- You can add or reduce spices as per your choice.
