Tricolor momos

The republic day is around the corner, so I made this Tricolor momos, to achieve saffron and green color I added carrot puree for saffron and spinach/palak puree for green color. I though that the puree from veggies may taste different compare to the normal momos but it taste exactly same not even a hint of flavor or taste in the green and saffron momos. Kids loved it very much, the momos stuffed with cabbage filling. Whenever I make this momos my kids eagerly wait for the chocolate momos, OMG they are so…good, I chop up the dark chocolate compound / dairy milk chocolate and stuff in the momos. The hot momos with oozing chocolate filling is just amazing.

Let’s see the procedure for Tricolor momos,
