Chicken Momos (Steamed) Recipe

Hi my dear friends, how was your New year, mine was a busy one..as I had my folks over to my place for dinner. My brother has been asking me to make chicken momos for a long time now. This is one of the easiest recipe that you could make and is delicious too...

I like to believe that this is one the healthiest dish coz no frying in the oil etc..but since I use Maida (its not so healthy)....OK now lets get down to make this and impress your in-laws.....

Ingredients :
Maida = 1 cup
Water = to make the dough

For the stuffing:
Minced chicken= 1/2 kg
Minced Onion = 2 big
Minced Ginger= 2 inch piece
Minced Garlic=10-15 pearls
Chopped green Coriander =1/2 cup
Chopped green chille = 4-5
Soya sauce = 1 tsp
Salt = as per taste

How to :
  • Make a smooth dough of Maida the consistency should be that of roti dough.
  • Mix all the ingredients for stuffing in a bowl and mix well.
  • Make small pooris but it should be very thin.
  • Stuff the pooris with the chicken stuffing ( shape them like you would do a modak)and steam it for abt 20 min. I steamed in my Idly steamer.
  • Serve hot with Garlic and red chillies hot sauce.

    I have been waiting to try this recipe for sometime now. Could you tell me if the minced chicken is cooked or non cooked.

  28. Ohh and do you have a recipe for the garlic and chilly dip

  29. Lakshmi: the chicken is raw but dont worry it will get cooked.

    just grind garlic and dried red chillie soaked in water and then add salt. dats all.
