chicken momos

momos are steamed dumplings with mince filling. This momo has chicken filling,there are also pork,prawn,squid and variety of fillings. I have made the momo wraps are home, but I would suggest you buy ready made wonton wraps,unless you can roll the wrap very thin, mine were a little thick,but was very good.

ingredients for filling
Print this recipe
  • 1/4 kg chicken mince
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp mince ginger
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • salt to taste
for wrap
  • 1 cup flour (maida)
  • 2tsp oil
  • salt to taste
  1. mix together all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and keep it aside.
  2. in a bowl sift flour and salt,add oil and enough water to knead into a firm dough. Cover and keep aside.
  3. knead the dough once again and form 12 lime sized balls.
  4. roll the dough into a flat thin circle, place the 1/2 tbsp of filling in the center , fold the wrap to half and pinch the corner. hold one side of wrap from the center and fold like pleats (like sari pleats) till you complete the circle. press all the pleats together and twist.(i shall make a video demonstrating that pretty soon)
  5. prepare the remaining momos in the similar way.
  6. arrange them an inch apart and steam for 15minutes.
  7. serve momos with sweet chilli sauce
