Momo or Dimsum is very popular snack item in China and in North part of India. People in North India usually take it with Hot spicy sauce and is commonly available in most of the restaurants. I tried to take Momo and create an Indian recipe with a twist so my this recipe is a combination of Soya chaap and Momo with tangy tomato curry. Soya chaap is made of Soya bean lentil and is rich in Protein. It is available in dry or moist form, dry soya chaap packs can be ordered from local shop or online store.
