This is a favourite recipe in our house that is actually the husband’s recipe. He makes it so well that it is better than what I’ve had outside. It is actually pretty simple to prepare so let’s dive straight into it.


For the filling:

1/2 Kg chicken mince boiled

1 capsicum finely chopped

2-3 green chillies finely chopped

1 large onion finely chopped

2 inch piece ginger finely chopped

salt to taste

For the outer shell:

1/2 Kg maida/processed flour

1 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. oil

Water to knead into a dough

Recipe: Mix maida/processed flour with salt, oil and water. Knead the maida dough and set aside. Since the chicken mince is cooked, add all the chopped ingredients and salt and mix well. Your filling is ready now. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. It should not be wet. Now roll out the dough into large circular disks/chapatis. Cut each such round into 4 equal parts. Stuff each part/pocket with adequate filling and seal it by pinching the ends together to form a pouch in any shape that you like. Make all the pouches/momos.

Steam them in a steamer for about 10 minutes. Your momos are ready to serve. Serve with any hot dipping sauce or chutney of your choice. Make for a really tasty snack/appetizer. Enjoy!

  1. Chicken momos are my favorite. Thanks, Rachna, for the recipe. One thing I notice is that in your previous recipe of chicken momos you used soy sauce, but not in this. Please tell which one is more yummier. 🙂

    1. How sharp you are, Ravish! You know this is the husband’s recipe. As an eater, l would say that both taste good. 🙂
