For Filling


  • 40 grams Saffola Chinese Oats
  • 1/2 cup cabbage, finely chopped 
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped 
  • 1/4 cup beans, finely chopped
  • an inch piece of ginger, grated
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oil

How to make Saffola Chinese Oats Vegetable Dimsum

  • Add the flour into a large mixing bowl, add a little water at a time and knead to make a smooth dough
  • Once the dough comes together, keep kneading for about 5 minutes to make it smooth and elastic. The dough should not be sticky.  Cover and keep aside
  • Heat a teaspoon of oil in a wok/kadhai. Add the vegetables and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes on high heat until they become lightly soft. Add the 40-gram oat packet into the vegetables, cover and cook the oats in the steam created along with the vegetables on low heat.
  • You can optionally sprinkle a teaspoon of water to cook the oats
  • Once the oats are cooked, turn off the heat and allow the vegetable oat mixture to cool
  • The next step is to roll the dough out, fill and shape it into dumplings (momos)
  • Divide the dough into small lemon size portions of an inch in diameter. Dust the dough portions with flour and roll out into a circle. Don’t roll too thick, as the filling will push itself out and tear when steamed
  • Place a small spoon of filling in the center of the rolled circle. Bring together the edges of the dough with a pinching and folding motion on one side and bring the other side to hold to the pinched side
  • By doing this, the half moon shaped momos will have a frilled look. Proceed the similar way with the remaining dough
  • You can experiment with different shapes and sizes that you like. All it takes is some time and practice
  • As you keep shaping the momos, you need to keep them on a greased platter and cover with a damp cloth to prevent them from drying out
  • While you are shaping the momos, keep a steamer with water boiling. Grease the steamer pan with some oil to prevent the momos from sticking
  • Place the shaped momos on the greased steamer pan. 
  • So when you have one set of shaped momos, place them in the steamer and steam on high for 5 to 7 minutes until you see a glaze on the skin
  • The skin will begin to shine. As soon as you notice this, turn off the heat and remove the momos from the steamer. Place them in a dish and keep covered
  • Serve Saffola Oats Chinese Vegetable Dim Sum along with Chilli Garlic Sauce
