1. Mix all the ingredients for the filling together and refrigerate until the dough is ready. (Usually the filling is not precooked; if you cook it, drain any excess liquid. Also, if using pork mince, cook the filling thoroughly before stuffing.)

2. Knead the flour with water to make a stiff dough. Wrap in a damp cloth for 15 minutes. (It is important that the dough does not get dry.) Roll out dough into thin rounds (5cm in diameter). 

3. Add 1tsp of the filling in the centre of each disc; seal edges with a little water.

4. Boil 8 cups of water in a large vessel and add a batch of the momos. Cook over medium-low heat. Once done, add more water and repeat step until momos are cooked. Serve hot with chilli sauce.
