In the ingredients yeast has been mentioned but in the recipe east is not used. After freezing can we steam instead of frying.

I like to bring to your kind attention that Momo's are a Tibetan recipe and not Thai. Tibetan food is also great and has its own distinct flavour.
Momos are very popular, specall in Mussoorie, India. We all have been fans.
One suggestion is that Momo's can be fried as well after they have been steamed. We make the momos and freeze them. When you have guests, just take out a few and fry. Fried are more tasty.

Also, the filling, if stightly cooked before filling will give out less juices. (Another way)
