The easy way to make the momo pockets are to roll the whole dough into a thin sheet and then will a sharp round cutter [A bowl] cut out round sheets.
Then fill these sheets with the filling and close the end.
Prepare a pot of boiling water and then pout a heat proof dish on it which has ventilation holes in it so that the steam can pass [ only if you don’t have a momo making utensil]
Rub oil on the surface and layer the momos in it and then cover the pot with a lid for 15 minutes.
Keep on checking the progress
Preparing the chutney
