Finally home made momos

For some weeks ago I saw a blogger had made dumplings and I relized how much I miss momos (dumplings) and then I saw an other blog with a video blog about how to make momos. So, was that a sign for me to make momos? I think so.

In the evening after smaka på Stockholm I made momos and skyped with a friend from India and living in Hong Kong right now. Well, it was the first time for me to make momos, so I was a bit worried I was going to fail one of the reasons was I did not have oil and used instead coconut oil. However, my momos turn out perfect!
Also, in India I have had steam momos and not fried, but in my kitchen I have limited of equipment’s and needed to fry all my momos and was not sure how the momos would taste. On the other side, I did not need to worry that much, everything turn out great and I have food boxes for some days due to I made too much fillings.

My fillings was with what I had in the kitchen, ginger, garlic, beef, carrot, onion and some masala and on top of that black pepper. So, you can fill the momos with what every you like.
Moreover, the dough is more important to get with right potions.

For the dough
  • 1 cup (150 g, 5¼ oz) plain or All Purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml, 2¾ fl oz) water
  • ½ tsp vegetable oil
  • ¼ tsp salt

Then, let the dough rest for 30 minutes and then you can make the filling. In the end fry the momos for some minutes and then eat!

In my case I stood in the kitchen and was eating the momos while the were ready directly from the pan. Lovely, best part of living alone, none can comments on my behavior. hehe

Yoga and lunch

Wow, I can not believe how much I have already done and the time is not even 12!
The reason why I mange to correct the last things on the thesis, iron, yoga and organizing my clothes was because I woke up at 5:45 and could not fall a sleep again.
When I woke up my stomach was screaming for food, you might now the feeling when the stomach is so empty and hungry it start to hurt. That was the feeling I woke up with. So, I did not have any other options then get up and eat breakfast.

Well, today for lunch a friend of mine and me are going to Kungsträdgården for lunch. I do not know what I will have this time. First time was BBQ chicken and cow stomach this time I would like to have something else…. Let see. But fore sure mango lassie!

This is the BBQ Chicken we had. The BBQ Chicken was really tasty better then expected. Also, the weather was much nicer then todays’. Well, at least I am going to smaka på Stockholm again, I am so lucky to have great people around me who loves food just like me.

Back to Islam

For three days ago the Hinduism book got over and I needed a new book. However, I faced the same problem as always, which book to read now. English or Swedish.

However, I had this thin book in the back of my shelf covered with many other books such as baking, religions and chick books. But I thought this books might be easy to read in Swedish and is written about the Qur’an. The lay out is simple, Swedish text with some parts with text from the Qur’an and trying to discuss about moral and what is a good behavior.
I would say the book compare a lot between a “normal” person with a kid, animal and handicap what are the differences. Well, I would say I take the whole book with a pinch of salt.
