    8. Dab some water on the edges and place a tablespoon of the mix in the centre of each circle.
    9. Fold the edges and pinch and twist to seal or fold the momo in half (into a semi-circular/moon shape) and pinch the edges shut.
    10. Place these arrangements onto a moist cloth/ parchment paper or well greased surface.
    11. Before placing them in the steamer, ensure the steamer layers/trays are well greased.
    12. Place the momos into the steaming dish and cook for 10-15 mins.
