Tomato Garlic Dip With Momos

How the Dip Should be to Serve With Momos

The sauce or dip you serve with dim sum/momos should be thick, soft, and creamy. It would be an awesome condiment for dim sum/momos, if it is garlicky, hot, spicy, and tangy. You can make such a dip easily at home.

I used tomatoes, garlic, kashmiri red chili flakes, sugar, salt, and lemon juice to make this hot sauce. It took about 20 minutes to make it.

To start with, Soak kashmiri red chili flakes in warm water. Keep aside for 10 minutes. Boil two whole tomatoes in water for 8 minutes. While it starts leaving its' skin, add garlic cloves. Boil for a minute. Turn off the fire. Keep aside for cooling.

Remove the skin of boiled tomatoes. Discard them. Cut tomato into pieces. Take them in a mixer grinder/blender. Add boiled garlic, soaked red chili flakes, sugar, and salt. Grind to get a smooth paste. If needed, add tomato boiled water while grinding. Grease a pan with butter or oil. Heat it. Pour this sauce into the pan. Boil the mix till you get the required thickness. Add lemon juice. Turn off the fire. Mix well. Transfer this sauce into a serving bowl. Hot and spicy tomato-garlic dip/sauce is ready! Serve dim sum/momos with this hot and tangy sauce.
