Ingredients for The Dough:

  • Flour 2 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Baking powder 1-1/2 tsp

For The Filling:

  • Chicken mince (boiled) 1 cup
  • Green peas (boiled ) 1/2 cup
  • Onions (chopped) 1/2 cup
  • Garlic (chopped) 1 tbsp
  • Ginger (chopped) 1/2 tbsp
  • Soy sauce 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chillier green chili 1
  • Black Pepper (crushed) 1/4 tbsp
  • Oil as required

To make the dumpling skin, in a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder and water; and knead to a stiff dough, with water and keep aside for about 20 minutes, covered with a wet cloth, so that the dough doesn’t dry out. For the Chicken Filling, heat oil and add the chopped green chili or red chili, onions, chopped ginger and garlic. Sauté for about 4-5 minutes and add the boiled chicken mince and boiled peas. Take it off the heat and mix in the soy sauce, salt and black pepper. Divide the dough into equal small portions. Shape them into balls and roll them out thinly, to a circular shape. You can also make momos using moulds, which will make the process even and easier. Take a dough disk, wet its edges and place a spoonful of filling in the center, bring the edges together to cover the filling, twist carefully to seal the momos. Repeat the process till all the dough and the filling is used up. Meanwhile, fill a steamer with some water and let boil. Arrange the momos on the steamer and steam for about 15-20 minutes. Serve Chicken Momos with Peanut Chilli Dipping sauce.
