For the dough, take
refined flour in a bowl, add around ¾ cup water, a little at a time, and knead into a dough.
Dust the worktop with
some flour, keep the dough on it and knead for 5-10 minutes or till it becomes smooth. Divide into small equal portions and roll out into thin puris.
Place 1 tbsp mutton
stuffing in the centre of each puri, rub the edges with water and then fold one end over the other and press to seal. Further pinch the edges to make a design and make them look like karanjis.
Heat sufficient water in
an idli steamer. Place the momos on a greased perforated plate, keep it in the steamer, cover the steamer and steam for 10 minutes or till momos become almost transparent.
Transfer onto a serving
